25 December 20 —

by Aniket

Haridwar: Police and the tourist department got hard with touts who harass tourists in the city. Police arrested over a dozen of them on Wednesday and Thursday.

According to Tourist Assistance Force (TAF) officials, a campaign is being carried out against city touts.

“We have arrested 12 touts from different areas of the city while they were harassing foreign tourists,” an official said.

“There are a lot of habitual offenders’ among touts. They are being identified and a database is being prepared,” the officer said. TAF will also make sure the touts are released only on certified bonds. In case of repeated violation, they could be booked under more punitive laws. Currently, there are 50 ex-servicemen working for TAF. They are deputed at tourist spots, but they often find themselves at the receiving end of the touts. Nothing was done against attackers in instances when hawkers attacked them.

“Earlier, TAF used to round up the touts and handed them over to the police. They were then booked under Section 151 of CRPC but were released the very next day. Now, they won’t be able to get away with mild punishment anymore,” the official added.

Question 4.
You are Beena/Biju. As a special correspondent of a leading daily, you have to write a report in 150 to 200 words on good oral hygiene for overall well-being
Answers:
Good oral hygiene is essential for overall well-being
26 December 20 –, Kota

by Beena/Biju

There’s more to oral hygiene than just brushing your teeth. Here’s why it’s important and how to get it right.

Good oral health and a beautiful smile can enhance one’s confidence. Good oral hygiene implies that the teeth are clean; the gums are pink and do not bleed and absence of bad breath. Dental hygiene can pave the way for a healthier life.

Unfortunately, many people do not pay attention to oral hygiene due to busy stressful lifestyle, change in diets from tough fibrous food to soft refined food and increased incidence of systemic disorders.

Gum diseases caused by poor oral hygiene have been linked to systemic diseases, like cardiovascular diseases, stroke, pre-term delivery of babies and diabetes mellitus.

Diabetes and gum diseases have a two-way relationship. Uncontrolled diabetes leads to increased production of harmful substances in the blood, which have a destructive effect on gums. Similarly, products released due to gum disease cause an elevation in blood glucose level, which may require more medication or insulin. So, maintenance of good oral health by a diabetic can actually lower his/her dosage. Bacterial toxins from gum disease enter the bloodstream and contribute to blockage of a blood vessel, resulting in cardiac arrest and stroke.

Sir

I want to bring to your kind notice that I sent a money order of * 500/- to my brother at village Deeg under Postal Receipt No. 02233 of Mansarover Post office, Jaipur, on 10 July 20 –. I sent it to him to purchase some books. He urgently needed those books. I was sure that he would have got the money order, but I was shocked to know when I received a phone call from my brother yesterday that the money order has not reached yet. It shows carelessness on the part of your department. You know it very well that it is the age of technology. On the one hand, we can send money to anybody by NEFT or RTGS. We can transfer money at the very moment, but on the other hand, your department has failed to send money in a month. I hope that an enquiry will be conducted in the case and I’ll be informed about the proceedings.

Sir

It is to draw your kind attention to the rude behaviour of Mr R. K. Soni, the cashier of your bank. We have so many complaints against him. Whenever we approach his counter, we have to stand for hours to get the amount because he is often found either out or indulged in chatting. He can be seen talking on phone or another person present there in the bank. We wait for him for a long time but he doesn’t seem to pay attention to the customers. Whenever we request him, he starts behaving in a rude manner, particularly with the customers. When he makes payment, he does not care for priority. He doesn’t make any logical system of paying so that nobody has to stand in queue and wait for his number standing at the window. It is hoped that you will personally look into the matter and redress the situation.

Write a report on hazards of smoking in about 150-200 words.
Answers:
A Report on Hazards of Smoking

The habit of smoking, especially in youngsters, has assumed alarming proportions in India. Adolescents take up smoking as recreation and soon fall into this great harmful habit. A recent survey done by World Health Organization revealed that the number of regular smokers in the age group of 17 to 25 has gone up by about 15 per cent in the last decade. The WHO report estimated the cost of de-addiction and medical treatment of smokers at 700 crores annually. The percentage of smokers in urban and rural areas is almost the same and deaths due to smoking-related diseases have been put at almost 2.5 million annually.

Students, young professionals, workers and agricultural labourers are some sections that are more prone to the habit of smoking.

Passive smoking has also became a major health hazard for non-smokers like children and women.

A recent law has banned smoking in public places and workplaces and penalties have been imposed on violaters. Huge profits made by tobacco companies and the income obtained by the government through excise duty on tobacco products has prevented a complete ban on tobacco products; however awareness drives should be initiated to educate the youth about the fatal effects of smoking on their health.

धूम्रपान के दुष्प्रभावों पर एक रिपोर्ट
भारत में धूम्रपान की आदत, विशेषकर युवा वर्ग में खतरनाक आयाम ले चुकी है। नवयुवक मनोरंजन के लिए धूम्रपान करने लगते हैं व जल्द की इस अत्यन्त हानिकारक आदत के शिकार हो जाते हैं। विश्व स्वास्थ्य संगठन द्वारा किये एक हाल के सर्वेक्षण से ज्ञात हुआ है कि पिछले एक दशक में 17 से 25 वर्ष के आयु वर्ग में धूम्रपान करने वालों की संख्या लगभग 15 प्रतिशत बढ़ी है। इस report ने इस आदत से मुक्ति पाने व इससे होने वाले रोगों के इलाज का खर्च १ 700 करोड़ प्रति वर्ष ऑका है। शहरी एवं ग्रामीण इलाकों में धूम्रपान करने वलों की संख्या लगभग समान है व धूम्रपान-सम्बन्धित रोगों से मरने वालों की वार्षिक संख्या 25 लाख बतायी गयी है।

विद्यार्थी, युवा बुद्धिजीवी, कामगार व कृषि मजदूर कुछ ऐसे वर्ग है जिनमें धूम्रपान की आदत अधिक पायी गयी है। अप्रत्यक्ष धूम्रपान भी धूम्रपान न करने वालों-जैसे बच्चों व महिलाओं के लिए एक गम्भीर स्वास्थ्य समस्या बन गयी है।

एक हाल में बने कानून द्वारा धूम्रपान को सार्वजनिक स्थलों व कार्यस्थलों में प्रतिबन्धित कर दिया गया है तथा उल्लंघन करने वालों पर दण्ड का प्रावधान रखा गया है।

तम्बाकू कम्पनियों द्वारा कमाये गये भारी मुनाफे तथा सरकार को तम्बाकू उत्पादों से मिलने वाले राजस्व के कारण तम्बाकू उत्पादों पर पूर्ण प्रतिबन्ध सम्भव नहीं है, फिर भी युवाओं को धूम्रपान के घातक प्रभावों के विषय में शिक्षित करने हेतु जानकारी देने के अभियान चलाए जाने चाहिए।

Answers:
A Report on Ground Water Conservation
Jamnagar, Febrauary 10

Dangerously low levels of groundwater in most regions of Saurashtra have sent alarm bells ringing. In a recent survey, it was found that groundwater levels have gone down by almost 50150 feet in the last decade. Rising population, growing industrialisation and increased agricultural demands have put an increased burden on available water resources. In and around Jamnager, efforts have been made to collect water by builing dams and reservoirs to conserve rainwater. However, erratic rainfall leaves them mostly dry.

The situation worsens during summers and most tubewells, wells and submersible pumps become useless.

About 60 per cent of irrigated agriculture and 85 per cent of drinking water supply depends on groundwater sources in Jamnagar. Hence, receding of groundwater levels has created acute water shortage in and around the city.

Recently, new rainwater-harvesting systems have been installed in apartment blocks and in many buildings. Water-recyling has also been taken up on a large scale and careful use of water is being taught to people. These measures are expected to improve the situation of water availibility in the city in the coming years.

भूमिगत जल संरक्षण पर एक रिपोर्ट
जामनगर, फरवरी 10

सौराष्ट्र के अधिकतर क्षेत्रों में भूमिगत जल के खतरनाक होते नीचे स्तर के खतरे की घंटी बजा दी है। हाल में किए एक सर्वेक्षण में यह ज्ञात हुआ है कि भूमिगत जलस्तर अनेक स्थानों पर लगभग 50 से 150 फीट घट गया है। बढ़ती जनसंख्या, बढ़ता हुआ औद्योगिकरण एवं बढ़ती कृषि मार्गों ने उपलब्ध जल संसाधानों पर अतिरिक्त दबाव डाला है। जामनगर व इसके आस-पास के क्षेत्रे में बाँध व जलाशय बनाकर वर्षा के पानी का संग्रह करने का प्रयास किया गया है। किन्तु असमान वर्षा के कारण ये अक्सर सूखे रहते हैं। स्थिति गर्मीयों में और बिगड़ जाती है तथा अधिकतर ट्यूबवेल, कुएँ व भूमिगत पम्प बेकार हो जाते हैं।

जामनगर में लगभग 60 प्रतिशत सिंचित कृषि तथा 85 प्रतिशत पेयजल आपूर्ति भूमिगत जल पर निर्भर है। इस कारण भूमिगत जल स्तर का नीचे गिरना शहर व उसके आस-पास विकट जल-संकट उत्पन्न कर दिया है।

हाल में आवासीय परिसरों व इमारतों में नए जल-संग्रहण निकाय लगाये गये हैं। जल-चक्रीय शोधन को भी बड़े पैमाने पर प्रारम्भ किया गया है तथा जल का सावधानीपूर्ण उपयोग लोगों को सिखाया जा रहा है। इन सभी प्रयासों से आने वाले वर्षों में शहर में जल उपलब्धि की स्थिति के बेहतर हो जाने की अपेक्षा की जा रही है।

All of us had brought their lunch and other eatables. The bus departed at 9 a.m. amid a chorus of hurrahs and shouts of joy.

Our history teaher, Mrs Sharma and our class teacher Mr Singh accompanied us. We were told not to litter and maintain discipline on the trip. The two hour journey was quite enjoyable and we reached Chittorgarh at 11 a.m.

The very first view of the Chittor Fort was stunning. The fort stood on a hilltop. Our history teacher told us that this was one of the largest forts in India and was built by the Mauryas during the 7th Century. It has also been the Capital of Mewar for more than 800 years. The fort has many gates, the main gate being Ram Pol. We saw the museum in Fateh Prakash Palace, which had a unique collection of old guns, swords and other weapons.

We also saw the famous Vijay Stambh which was built by Rana Kumbha to commemorate his victory over Mahmud Khilji. Its 157 steps lead to the top of the tower. We also saw the Rana Kumbha Palace. This palace was the residence of Meera Bai and queen Padmini. After having lunch near a large pond, we started back for Kota at 3 p.m.

चित्तौड़ किले का प्रथम दृश्य स्तब्ध करने वाला था। किला एक पहाड़ पर स्थित था। हमारी इतिहस की अध्यापिका ने हमें बताया कि यह भारत के विशालतम किलों में एक था। इसे मौर्यों ने सातवीं शताब्दी में बनाया था व यह 800 वर्षों तक मेवाड़ की राजधानी भी था। किले के कई द्वार थे जिनमें मुख्य द्वार राम पोल था। हमने फतेह प्रकाश महल का संग्रहालय भी देखा जहाँ पुरानी बन्दूकों, तलवारों व अन्य हथियारों का अद्भुत संग्रह था।

हमने प्रसिद्ध विजय स्तम्भ भी देखा जिसे राणा कुम्भा ने महमूद खिलजी पर विजय की स्मृति में बनवाया था। इसका 157 सीढ़ियाँ मीनार के शिखर तक ले जाती हैं। हमने राणा कुम्भा महल भी देखा। यहाँ पर मीराबाई व रानी पमिनी निवास करती थीं। एक बड़े तालाब के पास भोजन कर हम 3 बजे कोटा के लिए वापस लौटे। इतिहास को अपनी आँखों के सामने जीवन्त होते देखने का यह अविस्मरणीय अनुभव था।
