Dears
Sevadarshan is an association of likeminded people from Indian expatriate society in Kuwait who
strongly believe and stand for Manava Seva, Madhava Seva offering selfless service. Though got
registered under the Indian Embassy Kuwait in 2005, Sevadarshan was active since 1993. We have
always been a helping hand for the needy people, be it food, or shelter.
On the occasion of completing 10 years of selfless service to mankind, we would like to thank from
our heart, all the people who stood with us in all our endeavors. Sevadarshan is a group of people who
keeps the love for our nation and our fellow beings. We keep the feel of oneness above anyones social,
financial or professional status; we keep the feel of oneness of being an Indian rather than being a
native of any Indian state.
With this strong will, let us step forward with the pledge that whatever happens, we will be the
energy source for future Sevadarshan activities in favour of mankind.

HISTORY OF SEVA DARSHAN KUWAIT


Back in 80s a couple of like-minded individuals from India who were working in various jobs across
Kuwait got together to form an association of Indian expatriates who shared the same goal of promoting
seva, culture and pass on our Nations great heritage to our next generationwho were growing up in Kuwait.
Various like-minded groups formed across the country that represented a cross section of society from
various states of India. In late 80s, the members from the state of Kerala also became active in the cultural
and social activities carried on by various organization in Kuwait. The Indian Arts Circle served as a
common point for the Indian community to meet and celebrate festivals and other functions.
The Invasion of Kuwait brought a stop to all activities in Kuwait and this was later restarted after the
Liberation and when many of the expatriates returned back to Kuwait. Lots of newly recruited people
arrived in Kuwait to take advantage of the growing vacancies and job opportunities. They brought back
lots of memories and energy from their stay in India in the interim period. As time passed by, life was
back to normal in Kuwait. Friends and known people who had joined hands in various charity efforts back
in India got together and met regularly at various parts of Kuwait. They organized various programmes,
and also brought many celebrities to Kuwait. They contributed to severalsevaactivities back in India and
in Kuwait.
Later in the year 2005, it was thought essential to have themselves registered as an organization under
the office of the Indian Embassy of Kuwait to have the sanction of the governments representative office
in Kuwait. After long thought process, a working constitution was drafted. After receiving the necessary
approvals SEVA DARSHAN KUWAIT was officially registered as an organization with the Indian Embassy
of Kuwait. A logo was adopted by the members and the first executive of the association was elected with
Shri. Suresh Kadambari as the president. The association formed units in Abbasiya, Farwaniya, Salmiya
and Fahaheel. Members from all over Kuwait attended regular get together and meeting.
In 2006, one of the biggest gatherings of association members was held by Seva Darshan in Wafra with
over 700 participants. Few months later another gathering witnessed the presence of more than 200 Tamil
members. Various programmes like SanksarKendras for children, festival celebrations were started at all
units. More and more members came into contact with the organization. Various well-wishers also stood
by the organization at various times supporting all its activities.
Doing seva and initiating a need for doing Seva has always been the underlining principle of Seva
Darshan Kuwait and our members have effectively been able to carry the message across to the society
by its deeds and by setting befitting examples. Every year the executive body of the organization grew
in size according to representation and many karyakarthas came forward to lead the organization ahead.
With more able leaders came new ideas and an urge to expand the organization so that all sections of the
society could take advantage of the noble thoughts to which all members of the organization were bound
by faith.
In 2008, Seva Darshan conducted Bharathotsav 2008. The mega event was aimed at supporting one
of the most ambitious projects the organization had ever supported. With Bharathotsav we could back
the construction of a building for the Krishnajyothi Kendra in Palaghat, a home for the visually blind.
Over 3000 people attended the event and we were able to achieve our target.It gave the members the much
needed energy to expand further into the society and get spread its message.
Along with its children wing, Bala Darshan Kuwait and AdhiatmicSamithis, the units in all four areas

have grown stronger over the years. Seva Darshan launched VicharBharati in 2010, as its professional
platform. The organization inaugurated by Shr. SubramaniamSwamy has conducted many programmes
since its inception which includes, professional workshops, career development programmes etc. It has
also serves as an intellectual platform where many ideas and debated. The organization also brings out a
monthly e-magazine, Sopanam that encourages the members to enhance their creativity by writing stores,
poems and informative articles. The magazine has over 5000 readers across the world.
In 2010, we conducted the Bharath Darshan which was held to support the building of a school in
Marayoor, Kerala. The effort was received with overwhelming response by the public.
In the year 2011, Seva Darshan launched SamskrithaBharati Kuwait, to propagate the divine language
of Sanskrit in Kuwait. A large number of people attended the Sanskrit speaking camps organized every
year in Kuwait. In the same year, we also launched Yuva Darshan to engage the senior children studying
in Kuwait.
In the year 2013, we conducted the BharathVikas in support of the Vikas Trust, which supported the
establishment of a student studying center in Trichirapally, Tamil Nadu. The same year was also celebrated
as the 150thbirth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda all across Kuwait.
In 2014, various events like Yuva For India and Shakti were held drawing great support from the
public in general. Later in the year launched Science International Forum to propagate the value of
science and Indian contribution to science.
The MathruSamithi, comprising of the ladies of Seva Darshan also play an important role in all activities
of the organization. Regular meeting of the samithi members happen in all areas where discussions and
programmes to enhance the well-being of the family are discussed.
The organization has been growingwith more and more support from the society since its inception
where the membership has grown with people from states like Andhra, Karnataka, and even Manipur. The
underlying principle on which the organization has been built still stands strong and the motto, Manava
Seva Madhav Seva, echoes in the hearts of its members in their day to day activities.

SEVA VIBHAG
Seva Darshan Kuwait was formed on the basic principle of being a catalyst among the Indian community
in Kuwait and to encourage the society for doing selfless SEVA. Seva is not charity. It is something to be
done selflessly, without expecting any remuneration other than peace of mind. Seva is providing our time
and resources to the needy brothers and sisters of our society. With this motto Seva Vibhag was formed
under the umbrella of Seva Darshan.
Seva Vibhag does a lot of humanitarian work and provides assistance to those who approach various
units of Seva Darshan. The support is extended to such people, both in Kuwait and India, one case to case
basis, with the help of contribution made by the members. Such assistance includes air tickets provided
for people who cannot afford and are stranded in Kuwait, medical assistance back in India through Seva
International etc. In case of special requests,
the Seva Vibhag along with Mathru Samithi
provides assistance for marriage of girls
from poor families. Birthday celebrations
of children are done at Bala Darshan in its
traditional way, where the kid is encouraged
to contribute for any Bala/Balika Sadans of
their choice, in Kerala.
In Kuwait, our members working in
various institutions provide assistance by
way of informing job opportunities, medical
assistance and so on. One of our unique
features is the Vishu Seva Dinam conducted
during Vishu, where all members and wellwishers of Seva Darshan Kuwait contribute
towards to the various Bala/Balika Sadans in
the form of Vishukaineettam.
Seva Vibhag coordinates the mega
projects undertaken by Seva Darshan.
During 10 years of our relentless services
to Nation, we successfully accomplished 3
mega seva projects. These are Krishnajyoti
Swashraya Kendram, Palaghat for visually
challenged (1998), Tribal School and
Hostel, Marayoor (2011), Vikas Education
Project, Tiruchirappalli Tamilnad for the
underprivileged students (2013). For regular
updates you can contact us at sevadarshan@
gmail.com or visit our Facebook page.

VISWAKARMA INSTITUTE OF
VOCATIONAL TRAINING, CHALAKUDY ( VIVT )
SEVA DARSHAN is a socio-cultural organization that works with the aim of organizing the Indian
expatriate community in Kuwait with the motto of Service to Mankind is Service to God. We organize
various programs and functions to ensure that our message reaches all sections of the society. We undertake
many seva projects in Kuwait and India. In the last six years we have undertaken three major seva projects
in Palghat, Marayoor and Tiruchirapalli.
In 2014 we have decided to start a skill development center in Chalakkudi, Trichur of Kerala State.
This Viswakarma Institute of Technology is affiliated to Jagad Guru Educational, Cultural and Charitable
Trust, Chalakkudy. The trust is already running two schools. This institute will be dedicated to uplift the
economically underprivileged students.
The land for the institute has been acquired and the trust is currently in the process of getting the
required government licenses and approvals. At the same time we have also applied for the recognition
for certification courses to the technical department of the central government. Currently we have also
started to build the required workshops for the institute. This project will immensely benefit the boys and
girls from Bala / Balika Sadanams to aquite technical skills and to choose a proper career when they are
required to stand on their own feet and live in the world. It will also enable such children who dont train
well in their regular academic studies to acquire these skills. This initiative will establish a center that
will render "Vocational Training Provider (VTP) courses, Modular Employable Skills (MES) under Skill
Development Initiative Scheme (SDIS) of DGE&T (Govt. of Indian). Successful persons will be awarded
certificates issued by NCVT (National Council for Vocational Training). Other courses in the pipeline are
Automotive Repair, Fabrication, Information and Communication Technology, Industrial Electrical, Civil
Construction, Electrical Engineering, Banking and Accounting
The project will be upgraded to the level of ITI within a period of 2 to 5 years as per the plan and
schedule. Part-time courses will be available for the selected sectors, which will benefit not only students
who have just passed out from school but also those who are well experienced in the field but not
possessing adequate approved certificates to climb the ladder in industries. As per requirement we have
50 cents of land available and a building of 300 sq meters. A new complex of another 300 sq meter will
also be constructed. VIVT is located in the premises of Vivekananda Bala Sadanam, 200 meters south
of Chalakudy Taluk Hospital; It is 1,3KM from Chalakudy South Junction on the east side of the NH47
Chalakudy bridge.

Sthri Shakthi

Ram Vaidya

In India, the family is the most important institution that has survived through the ages. We have a
society that emphasizes family integrity, family loyalty and family unity. In creating the human race male
and female, God gives man and woman an equal personality, endowing them the inalienable rights and
responsibilities proper to the human person. Presently it seems we are facing a real social paralysis when
it comes to the security of Women in the world. Wherever we go we read the news about the atrocities
against our sisters. Why do these monsters tear off the fabric of society? Bharat is also not an exception
to it. It is quite a strange fact to digest. In Bharat where Women has a special place in social arena such
gruesome incidents are making us speechless, at a time motionless. On the other hand, women have
become symbol of material gain. She was portrayed as fashion and gossip loving personality. But we
should see that Woman plays a vital part of social system.
The Womanhood is a river flows continuously for the benefit of creature and she not only produces us
all but sustains and nourishes for better life. We find the same womanhood in Sun which gives the light to
entire world, in rain, in wind and in every phenomenon of the world. We should salute this womanhood
whose ultimate manifestation is in the Mother Form. She is responsible for being instrumental of sustaining
the balance of Humanity and unites entire creation close to her.
For us Hindus, any woman is on a higher pedestal. Various ideologies through the prisms of their isms
view women differently. In the so called modern western thinking, she is atomised as an individual and
therefore is expected to assert her own rights. In the west she was considered inferior to man, therefore
she tries to prove that she is equal to man. In trying to prove that, she unfortunately imitates man and
thus by her very imitation of man, she unconsciously grants superiority to man. Communism on the other
hand views everything in the light of class struggle. It also views women as being oppressed by men and
therefore urges women to break the shackles of culture, family and religion and become free. We see
the result of these various instigations to women in the West. Though she appears to be enjoying social
and economic freedom, the end result is increase in broken homes, insecure social systems and result is
juvenile delinquency, with the result the women have become more insecure and so exploited more. For
example, in America 32% of the children are born to unwed mothers, only 52% of the children live with
their original parents, the divorce rate has doubled from 1960 to 1996.
Thus the role of Woman needs to be reviewed today. We believe that woman shouldnt imitate man.
Her character is not to imitate others. Imitation is the result of inferiority complex rooted in the psyche
of both men and women. Feminism may be both cause and result of the above psyche. Women should
recognise their own strength and explore the strength for the benefit of the society. So in short, Women
should build the strength as Sthri-Shakti, than the Sthri Mukti.
We believe that the society is live and divine. Each factor of the society should work for the benefit of
society. Like student should study for the benefit of the society, not for him/her self only. All men should
work hard for the sake of society. Similarly role of women is explore her inner potential for the welfare
of the society. The major role of Women is the role to bring a able person into existence. This process
may start even before the birth. So we have some Sanskaras before the birth of the child. In this process,
womans role is un-replaceable. Today world is facing the crisis of character. Though responsibility of
men cant be questioned, world recognises women role as vital and unique. We had a great example of

15

Jijamata and Shivaji in this regard.


Normally in many organisations, men are seen as front runners. Their outgoing attitude and present
social norms are responsible for it. However role of Women is the backbone of an organisation. We
experience it frequently that being low profile they provide all background support to the movement.
Without this support, men are helpless in their performance. So, many a times Face of the organisation
may be a Man, but the backbone of the organisation is a Woman.
We are fed up with the stories of quarrels between two women under one roof. We cant understand
the mean people who demand dowry at the wedding. We are really saddened by the reaction of the
society when girl is born in the family. We are worshipper of Kanyakumari and Grihalakshmi. How can
this country forget that we do Kanya Poojan. Women should rise for the protection of girl. They should
educate the masses to come out of the deep rooted problems of some part of the society. The spirit of
mutual help and service would also have to be made popular through our day-to-day social intercourse.
Our womenfolk should not be allowed to develop inferiority complex or a feeling of helplessness. They
should be taught that they are the living emblems of Parashakti.
Literacy campaign among women is one more important programme, which our educated mothers
alone can successfully tackle. But here also, inculcating noble samskars in them should be given the
priority; teaching of alphabets should come second. In order to do this, instill in them a spirit of pure
Devotion to our Motherland, Faith in our Dharma and Pride in our History. Show them the map of our
sacred motherland, the holy streams and mountains, the Tirthas and temples stretching right from the
Himalayas to Kanyakumari. Introduce them to the rich variety of our national life in language, literature,
art and social traditions. Thus make them become intimate with the true spirit of our national being.
Swami Vivekananda once was asked about the problems of the women, he said, Women must be
put in a position to solve their own problems in their own way. No one can or ought to do this for them.
And our Indian women are as capable of doing it as any in the world. One can note the reverence of
Womanhood in Vande Mataram, 'Tumi Vidya Tumi Dharma'.
Manu wrote in his Manusmrithi:

"Pita Rakshathi Kaumare,


Bhartha rakshathi yauvane,
Puthro rakshathi vardhakye,
Na sthree swathanthryam arhathi.."
MeaningIn adolescence her father, in youth her husband, in old age her son...must take care of a
woman. No woman shall be granted excessive freedom. In Manus perception, a woman is, by her very
nature, so divine and unique that she should never be left to fend for herself. It is the duty of society to
protect and take good care of her by her father during childhood, husband in her youth, and son in her
old age.
Can you imagine life without women? Female in Hinduism is considered to utmost importance. We
Hindus, contemplate cow as Mata and are called as 'Gou Mata'. In Ramayana, God Rama couldnt perform
Aswamedha Yaga without Mata Sita, so he built a look alike statue of Mata Sita and performed the Yaga.
This implies the theory that we should be able to see goddess in every woman. The Hindu goddess in all

16

her innumerable forms has also been celebrated in poetic verses of praise for many centuries. The ancient
Tamil classic, Chilappadikaram, praises its benighted heroine, 'Kannaki', who in her rage at a kings
injustice, tore off her left breast and burned the city of Madurai to the ground before rising to the sky
as a goddess. The beautiful Gita Govinda of Jayadeva details in verses heavy with longing and love the
ecstatic union of Krishna with beautiful Radha. The Saundarya Lahari (often attributed to Adi Shankara)
details the magnificent, radiant form of Devi as queen of the universe, and reveals the esoteric meaning
of her form as the Sri Yantra, the geometric pattern of energies that describes the inner workings of the
universe.
Our ancient Shakta theology in particular, unlike any other living religious tradition, attributes supreme
divinity, power over creation, all speech, nature, mind, and liberation, the universe itself, to Devi, the
Goddess, who exceeds even the great gods Shiva, Vishnu, Indra, and Brahma, upon whose bent backs she
sits in glory. These precious traditions of Hinduism, kept secret and revealed only to a few initiates for
millennia, are beginning to be known better today and to be shared with a wider circle of devotees. Within
this great tradition lie the potential seeds of a revolution in the way human beings conceive of our world,
ourselves, and one another.
The society that provides respect and dignity to women flourishes with nobility and prosperity. And
a society that does not put women on such a high pedestal has to face miseries and failures regardless of
how so much noble deeds they perform otherwise.

National Identies
National River: Ganga is the longest river of India flowing over 2,510 kms of mountains,
valleys and plains. It originates in the snowfields of the Gangotri Glacier in the Himalayas as the
Bhagirathi River. It is later joined by other rivers such as the Alaknanda, Yamuna, Son, Gumti,
Kosi and Ghagra.
National Emblem: The state emblem is an adaptation from the Sarnath Lion Capital of
Ashoka. In the original, there are four lions, standing back to back, mounted on an abacus
with a frieze carrying sculptures in high relief of an elephant, a galloping horse, a bull and a
lion separated by intervening wheels over a bell-shaped lotus. Carved out of a single block of
polished sandstone, the Capital is crowned by the Wheel of the Law (Dharma Chakra). In the
state emblem, adopted by the Government of India on 26 January 1950, only three lions are
visible, the fourth being hidden from view. The wheel appears in relief in the centre of the abacus
with a bull on right and a horse on left and the outlines of other wheels on extreme right and left.
The words Satyameva Jayate from Mundaka Upanishad, meaning 'Truth Alone Triumphs', are
inscribed below the abacus in Devanagari script.
National Flag: The National Flag is a horizontal tricolour of deep saffron (kesaria) at the
top, white in the middle and dark green at the bottom in equal proportion. The ratio of width of
the flag to its length is two to three. In the centre of the white band is a navy-blue wheel which
represents the chakra. The top saffron colour, indicates the strength and courage of the country.
The white middle band indicates peace and truth with Dharma Chakra. The green shows the
fertility, growth and auspiciousness of the land.Its design is that of the wheel which appears on
the abacus of the Sarnath Lion Capital of Ashoka. Its diameter approximates to the width of the
white band and it has 24 spokes. The design of the National Flag was adopted by the Constituent
Assembly of India on 22 July 1947.

Organ donation
Dr. Narayanan Namboothiri
(MOH, Kuwait)
Transplantation of human organs was first
done in India, according to ancient literature.
Charaka and Sushruta transplanted nose in an
injured person in those days over 5000 years
back. Transplantation, since then, is a recognized
treatment of people with organ failure. Presently
kidney, heart, lung, intestine, liver and pancreas are
transplanted in different centers across the world.
In addition tissues like cornea, veins, heart valves
and bones are also used in transplantation. Biggest
hurdle of organ transplantation is shortage of organ. On an average 21 people die every day from lack of
available organ in USA and proportionately it is almost 5 fold of it in India. Waiting list for transplant is
bulging every minute.
A healthy person can be a living donor for donations kidney, part of liver, lung, intestine, blood or
bone marrow. Buying or selling organs or tissues is prohibited and is illegal internationally, medically,
legally and ethically. Diseased organ donation rate is only 0.05 per million people in India while it is 5 in
Hong Kong, 8 in Kuwait, 25 in USA and 35 in Spain per million people. Cornea is the most frequently
transplanted tissue.
In India there are more than 2 million kidney failure patients. Every year 100,000 new patients require
treatment with end stage kidney failure. Only 2 % of these patients get dialysis and 5 % get transplanted.
India rank only 40th in the number of transplants per million people, only 3 in a million is getting a kidney
for transplant. According to International Society of Nephrology, almost 27000 live related and unrelated
kidney transplants occur in world yearly, 6435 in USA, and 1768 in Brazil and just over 3200 in India.
Misconceptions and inaccuracies persist on organ donation.
Facts on deceased (cadaver) donation.
1. Anyone can be a potential donor regardless of age, sex, race or medical history
2. All major religions in the world support organ and tissue donation and see it as the final act of love
and generosity to and others
3. When you are admitted with injury in hospital priority is to save your life .Organ donation is considered
after you are diseased (Brain dead)
4. When one is in the waiting list, it is the severity of illness, time spent waiting and blood group which
counts, not your financial or celebrity status
5. Through the entire donation process the body is treated with care, respect and dignity
6. There are no cost for the donor or family for organ or tissue donation

20

7. One deceased donor can save up to eight lives.


Facts about living donors
1. Donors should between 21 70 years old
2. Individuals should not donate under pressure
3. Donor will undergo detailed evaluation to ascertain his full fitness of health and suitability to
donate
4. Current research indicate that kidney donation does not change life expectancy or increase in risk of
developing any disease
5. One can have active normal life after donation and does not affect ones ability to have a child or
doing sports activities

Did you know in India every year nearly:
-

500,000 people die because of non-availability of organ

200,000 people die of liver disease

500,000 people die of heart disease

150,000 people await kidney for transplantation which only less than 5000 get it

1,000,000 people suffer from corneal blindness and await transplantation.

Organ transplantation and procurement in Kuwait:


Kidney transplantation started in 1979.

Organ procurement from deceased was started in 1996.

All residents of Kuwait are entitled to be on the waiting list to receive organs.

Transplant operation, medication and follow up is provided free of charge to all residents.

The ministry of health supports families of deceased donors and covers the cost of repatriation of the
body.

Religion and Organ Donation


Islam and Organ Donation:
The Muslim Law Council UK fatwa draws on one of the basic aims of the Muslim faith: Saving life.
Whosoever saves the life of one person it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind.

21

Holy Quran, chapter 5:32


Whosoever helps another will be granted help from Allah.
Prophet Muhammed (PBUH)
If you happened to be ill and in need of a transplant, you certainly would wish that someone would help
you by providing the needed organ.
Christianity and organ Donation:
Jesus Christ:
freely you have received, freely give.
Matthew, chapter 10:8
I hope that Christian people will seriously and positively consider organ donation. The ready willingness
to donate an organ is a clear sign of that sacrificial self-giving for others patterned by Jesus Christ.
His Holiness Pope John Paul II
Any act that can save life, such as organ donation, is a great thing and quite acceptable within our
faith.
Hindu Dharma and Organ Donation:
it is said that the soul is invisible.knowing this you should not grieve for the body.
Bhagavad Gita, chapter 2:25
Of all the things that it is possible to donate, to donate your own body is infinitely more worthwhile.
The Manusmruthi
The important issue for a Hindu is that which sustains life should be accepted and promoted as Dharma
(righteous living). Organ donation is an integral part of our livin.
Sikhism and Organ Donation:
Where self exists, there is no God Where God exists, there is no self.
Guru Nanak, Guru Granth Sahib
The dead sustain their bond with the living through virtuous deeds.
Guru Nanak, Guru Granth Sahib
The Sikh religion teachers that life continues after death in the soul, and not the physical body. The
last act of giving and helping others organ donation is both consistent with and in the spirit of, Sikh
teachings.
Dr. Indrajit Singh OBE, Director of the Network of Sikh Organizations UK
The true servants of God are those who serve Him through helping others.

Live Life then Give Life

BALA DARSHAN KUWAIT


Bala Darsan Kuwait is the childrens forum of Seva Darshan. The forum enables children to discover
and manifest divinity. It enables our children to appreciate their cultural roots and learn Indian values.
This is done through weekly planned activities, which include games, yoga, stories, bhajans (songs),
shlokas (prayers), and arts and crafts.
Children of age 5 and above participate in the weekly classes. The shlokas, prayers, are mostly in
Sanskrit language. Songs are mostly in Hindi and sometimes in English, Sanskrit or any other Indian
language. We encourage children to speak in their mother tongue at home and with friends from similar
background. We strongly believe that Bhasha (language), Bhusha (dressing) and Aachar (manners) make
and sustain our Sanskriti (culture). Currently classes are held in Malayalam and Tamil in the different
areas of Kuwait.
Volunteers from Seva Darshan dedicate their time to prepare and conduct these classes. The Bala
Darshan also brings the families of these children together and various programmes like Gokulotsavam
are regularly held with their support.
We have received lots of accolades and encouragement from the society and today over 500 students
attend the Bala Darshan classes every week across various centers in Kuwait.
For more details contact us on baladarshankuwait@gmail.com

Adhiatmika Samithi Kuwait


When Seva Darshan Kuwait members started regular gathering, the need for a platform to meet,
meditate and pray was raised by many families. An Adhiatmic Aamithi was formed that has grown over
the years and is now an important part of the organization.
The samithi aims to establish a spiritual society that works towards the welfare of all society and all
living beings. It works towards developing the feel of love between all people. It aims to help all weak,
poor, neglected and helpless people. It contributes towards the activity of the whole organization by ways
of financial and moral support.
The members meet regularly and for festivals. Their aim also is to ensure that the traditions and culture
of our Nation is kept intact.
Major events like Ramayana Masam acharnam, Ayyappa Vilakku, Bhajans are conducted regularly.

Amarnath Yatra and Environment

Obaidur Rehman

Kashmir holds not only a distinction of being a picturesque tourist place, but also a melting pot of various
religious centers and pilgrimage spots which makes it a busy religious tourism destination all across the
year. In fact, religions have inspired the construction of some of the most spectacular monuments in Valley
and all forms of art and architecture find expression in them. It is because of the religious character that the
three regions of Jammu and Kashmir have
got a unique identification: While Kashmir
Valley is known as a land of Sufis, Jammu
city is called a land of temples and Ladakh is
famous for the gumpas and monasteries. So
in all three parts of the state, pilgrim tourism
remains the most happening activity besides
the normal tourist flows.
The famous religious tourism spots of
Kashmir include Hazratbal, Kherbawani, and
Amarnath Cave. But it is the Amarnath Cave
that receives largest number of pilgrims.
So we can say that in terms of numerical numbers, Amarnath is largest religious tourism destination.
Amarnath Yatra is not only special for Hindus but for Muslims too. Hundreds of Muslims could be seen
offering their services for the smooth conduct of the yatra. So the pilgrimage provides a secular tinge in
an exclusively religious environment. It provides a chance of interaction and intermingling of intra and
inter-religious communities and promotes feelings of communal harmony.
Amarnath cave is a Hindu shrine dedicated to Lord Shiva and is located in South Kashmir Himalayas,
at an altitude of 3,888 m (12,756 ft), about 141 km from Srinagar, and reached via Pahalgam and Baltal
routes. The shrine is considered to be one of the holiest shrines in Hinduism. The cave is surrounded by
snowy mountains. The cave itself is covered with snow most of the year except in three summer months
(from mid June to mid August) when it is open for pilgrims. Thousands of Hindu devotees make an annual
pilgrimage to the Amarnath cave on challenging mountainous terrain to see an ice stalagmite formed
inside the cave.
It is believed that after the middle Ages, this cave was forgotten by people before it was discovered by
a shepherd, Butta Malik, in the 15th century once again. Story goes that a saint gave Buta Malik a bag full
of coal. On reaching home, to his utter surprise he finds the bag was full of gold coins. Overwhelmed with
joy, he wanted to thank the saint. But, he found that the saint had disappeared. Instead he found the Holy
Cave and Shiv Lingam there in. He announced the discovery of this to the Villagers. Then onwards this
has become the sacred place of Pilgrimage.
Another story relates to Bhrigu Muni. Long time ago, it is believed that the Vale of Kashmir was
submerged under water and Kashyapa Muni drained it through a series of rivers and rivulets. Therefore
when the waters drained, Bhrigu Muni was the first to have Darshan of Lord Amarnath. Thereafter, when
people heard of the Lingam, it became an abode of Lord Bholenath for all believers and a pilgrimage
which is performed by lakhs of people every year.

26

Environment issue is not restricted to


Kashmir only. It has assumed an international
challenge and the alarming situation demands
a need for a global awakening. But given the
fragile nature of Kashmirs environment,
particularly the areas surrounding the Amarnath
Cave and the routes that lead to it, authorities
are duty bound to ensure that mass flow of
pilgrims to an ecologically fragile area doesnt
cause harm to it. But the ground situation
presents a different picture. Such remains the
scale of the yatra, that at its peak, the two base
camps at Baltal and Pahalgam, huge camps
with thousands of tents pitched across miles of
once green meadows. The enormous numbers
directly reflect on the facilities provided to the yatries. There's a lack of toilets and a lot of pilgrims end
up relieving themselves into the open by the rivers passing by the base camps. Furthermore a lack of a
proper waste disposal system in both the camps and along the routes to the cave means that the whole area
is littered with plastic bottles, wrappers and other non-biodegradable pollutants, even much longer after
the yatra is over.
However, the fact remain that the pollution onslaught is bound to cause an irreparable loss to the Holy
cave and its surrounding ecology. There is a strong need to conduct a proper scientific survey to assess
the annual carrying capacity by the Pahalgam and Baltal routes that would serve as reliable and scientific
indicators towards arriving at a safe annual pilgrim number. However, this popular pilgrimage, received
about 634,000 persons in 2011, the highest recorded number for the site.The number was 622,000 in 2012
and 350,000 in 2013. Pilgrims visit the holy site during the 45-day season around the festival of Shravani
Mela in JulyAugust, coinciding with the Hindu holy month of Shraavana.

Hinduism as a Law of Life:


"Hinduism, which is the most skeptical and the most believing of all, the most skeptical
because it has questioned and experimented the most, the most believing because it has
the deepest experience and the most varied and positive spiritual knowledge, that wider
Hinduism which is not a dogma or combination of dogmas but a law of life, which
is not a social framework but the spirit of a past and future social evolution, which
rejects nothing but insists on testing and experiencing everything and when tested
and experienced, turning in to the soul's uses, in this Hinduism, we find the basis of
future world religion. This Sanatana Dharma has many scriptures: The Veda, the
Vedanta, the Gita, the Upanishads, the Darshanas, the Puranas, the Tantras but
its real, the most authoritative scripture is in the heart in which the Eternal has his
dwelling."(Karmayogin)

India's Rebirth

"Hinduism ... gave itself no name, because it set itself no sectarian limits; it claimed
no universal adhesion, asserted no sole infallible dogma, set up no single narrow
path or gate of salvation; it was less a creed or cult than a continuously enlarging tradition of the God ward endeavor of the human spirit. An immense manysided and many staged provision for a spiritual self-building and self-finding, it
had some right to speak of itself by the only name it knew, the eternal religion,
Santana Dharma..."

AYURVEDIC SUPPORT TO BREAST CANCER

Viadyashree.K.S.Jayashree

Every creation in the universe shall experience joy and sorrow at some point of time. Ayurveda defines
that the human body is the shelter for Dukha which is further defined as pratikulavedaniyam dukham
experience which is not congenial and joyful is Dukha. Otherwise Dukha is also used as a synonym
for disease or sickness. The tissues of the body are made up of cells which are the basic unit of life.
Each cell has specific behavior with regard to its structure, number and life span. This behavior changes
suddenly and the cells grow massively without control and as a result giving rise to a mass or tumour.
The cells in the malignant tumour can damage the
nearby organs, tissue. They also break away from a
malignant tumour and travel though the lymphatic
circulation to form new tumour in other parts of the
body. Among the varieties of cancers, Breast cancer
is the most common cancer in women worldwide,
with nearly 1.7million new cases diagnosed in 2012.
This represents about 12% of all new cancer cases
and 25% of all cancers in women as per World
Cancer Research Fund International.
The type of breast cancer is generally determined
by the origin of the growth of cancer cells, which is almost always in the lobes, lobules, or ducts. When
cancer is found in the nearby lymph nodes, it helps doctors to identify just how far the cancer has spread.
If the nearest lymph nodes contain cancer cells, additional nodes are usually examined for the presence or
absence of cancer cells to understand how far the disease has progressed. Death rates from breast cancer
have been declining since about 1990, in part to better due to screening and early detection, increased
awareness, and continually improving treatment options.
There is no known specific cause for Breast cancer. It is established that breast cancer is always caused
by damage to a cell's DNA. There are certain risk factors such as Age, Race, Family history, Personal
health history, early menarche, late menopause, which cannot be changed or prevented. Among these also
the causative factor cannot be pinpointed for having caused Breast cancer.
Preventable or avoidable risk factors
Sedentary life style
Alcohol consumption
Radiation
Combined hormonal therapy
Obesity

34

The following belief is often observed among the population. But they are not causes that are proven.
Hence one has to be aware that- Breast cancer is not contagious; one cant contract cancer from a person who is suffering from
cancer.
Breast cancer is not caused by wearing underwear bras, implants, deodorants, antiperspirants,
mammograms, caffeine, plastic food serving items, microwaves or cell phones, as myths often suggest.
Detection by self-examination
Self-examination of the breast is the best way to be aware of the changes that can occur in the breast
and can approach the specialist well in advance. This would prevent the complications of breast cancer
and one can lead normal life even after being detected and treated in time.
Confirmatory testing - The mammogram and clinical breast exam are the main tests recommended by
the American Cancer Society to find breast cancer early. For women who are at high risk of breast cancer
due to certain factors, the American Cancer Society also recommends breast MRI.
Ayurvedic classics describe a clinical condition called Arbuda which is often compared with malignant
tumours. Where the tumours cannot be felt in a location they can be correlated under different heads like
For Leuchemia (blood cancer) the sannipathaja pandu and asadhya pandu are the entities that could be
compared to a certain extent. Still an Ayurvedic physician has to depend totally on the modern diagnostic
tools both for the detection and the progression of the disease.
Under the causative factors Ayurvedic seers have added few more as

Mamasa parayana constant meat consumption

Ahitha ahara, tridosha prakopaka ahara and vihara.- Consumption of foods and indulging in
activities that aggravate all the three body humours-Vatha Pitta and Kapha. Though Ayurveda does not
clime the complete cure in breast cancer, it can provide a very effective add on therapy that can improve
the quality of life of the patient and also support in checking the disease.
1. Most important line of treatment Ayurveda advocates is the sustainability of Bala the both
physical strength and the immunity. This in turn shall help to conquer the disease cancer.-Arbuda.
Rakshed balam chapi narasya nityam tadrakshitam vyadhibalam nihanti Sushrutha, chi. 18/3
2. Panchakarma shodhana chikithsa- detoxifications through the adaptation of five purificatory
measures have to be adapted as the first line of treatment. Ofcourse implementation of Panchakarma
shodhana is the discretion of the attending physician who will schedule based on the stage of the disease,
status of general health, associated complications, systemic signs and symptoms etc. The author has tried
the Adha shodhana the purgative therapy in cases diagnosed as Breast cancer and being subjected to
chemo therapy after the surgery, which help the patient to accept the chemo therapeutic agent with milder
form of adverse effects.
3. Mathra basthi- trance- rectal administration of medicated ghee, after the completion of the
chemo therapy improves the digestion, enhances physical as well as mental stamina, promotes
weight. The same measure is more effective in terminal cases two who are suffering with severe loss
of appetite and literally starve.

35

4. Rasayana therapy -is another unique approach Ayurveda has evolved. Use of single herbs or in
combination to maintain the holistic health. Attributes of Rasayana are Promotion of memory
Intelligence
Immunity against disease and decay
Preservation of youth, lustre, voice
Maintenance of optimum strength of the
body and senses
5. Use of herbo-mineral formulationsAyurveda has identified that everything in the universe has medicinal value provided one uses with skill
and manifold processing and combinations. Thus the practitioners of Ayurveda have used many metals
and minerals also the gems as well in preparation of medicines. Many effective herbomineral formulations
are indicated in the management of Cancer. Few to quote here are Roudra rasa, chandraprabha vati, vajra
bhasma, Mahayogaraja guggulu, Thriphala guggulu etc.
As per the standards laid down by WHO (world health organization) every registered, diagnosed case
of cancer patient should receive the course of treatment as per standards, no fresh case is treated by
Ayurvedic physicians. Only recurrent and terminal cases are permitted. If both systems come together
to treat the cancer cases certainly there will be a great hope of survival without complication can be
achieved. Not only that the quality of life of the patient can be improved.
Cancer treatment can be stressful. Hence relaxing exercises, pranayama, yogasanas, can be much
helpful. Ayurveda offers oral herbs and herbomineral formulations, as well as topical therapeutic measures
like murdhni taila application of medicated oil to the scalp as shiropichu or dhara in overcoming the
stress.
Finally every woman should subject herself for examination and investigations periodically and be
aware of the risk factors and try to prevent those which can be prevented. A healthy life style often delays
the onset even if there is susceptibility.
Every year October month is observed as breast cancer month to create awareness and spread the word
about Breast cancer. Let us not wait till October instead every day be the day of awareness to protect our
women from the Breast Cancer.
Remember that old saying, "An

ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure"?

"Our duty towards God is compassion and


love towards the poor and needy."

Vichar Bharati Kuwait


Vichar Bharati is an affiliate of Seva Darshan Kuwait which is in existence since 2005 and a registered
organization with Indian Embassy. Seva Darshans working principle is Manav Seva is Madhav Seva.
Expatriate Indians live a fast paced life in Kuwait and the pressure of a monotonous working culture
has forced a lot of us to change our values and priorities. This has in no way hindered our thought process
and the community strives to achieve and contribute to the well being of our Nation in an intellectual and
constructive way; Vichar Bharati fills this gap.
Over the years many organizations have been created in Kuwait that has varied interests in arts, culture,
religious philosophies, specific demographic areas etc. Seva Darshan and its affiliate organizations aims
at unifying this thought process and enabling the Indian community to understand our culture, traditions,
values and attitudes more deeply and act as a catalyst in reforming the society for the betterment of the
Nation. The tide of globalization is posing a serious threat to these values of our nation that had stood the
test of time. A new age civilization simply based on consumers and their materialistic aspirations is slowly
evolving.
Vichar Bharati has been formed as an intellectual platform that can take up these challenges through
effective debates, and propagation of ideas amongst the elite as well as common people of our society.
Established in 2010, the organization as already had the honor of hosting eminent scholars like Dr.
Subramanian Swamy, Sri. Ravi Iyer (Seva International). Vichar Bharati is dedicated to the cause of
formulating and dissecting thoughts and ideas have only positive bearing on Nation-building activities.
Vichar Bharati will be instrumental in bringing forward an in-depth exploration to the multi-dimensional
achievements of India. From the time of Independence from the British rule we have slowly strived to
build up our country in the vision of the leaders who fought it. But a failure in the core values, spiritual
and cultural, have slowed down our faith in the true progress of our State. This has resulted in our nation
facing many overwhelming pressure from internal and external forces, which makes it very vulnerable.
As nationalistic children of this Nation, the onus lies on our hands to ensure that the progress of our
nation is ensured in all areas that will totally contribute to the welfare of our nation and society. Vichar
Bharathi is of the firm conviction that the task of Nation building and Man making cannot be achieved
unless we derive our strength from our roots. To make this possible we invite all dedicated intellectuals
and professionals to explore the potential of our rich philosophy, culture and history. A mixed approach
using all available tools will be adopted to arrive to channelize our inherent strength for the sake of
building a better and brighter Bharat. We will dedicate ourselves for the development and growth of our
country in all field of human endeavor cultural, social, academic, moral, national and spiritual by
promoting a sense of patriotism, national unity and integrity.
In the service of the nation, for the spiritual and social upliftment of our society.

On the 24th September 2014, India created history by becoming the first country in the world to enter
the Mars orbit in the very first attempt. Its Mars orbiter mission also called Mangalyan, was placed
successfully in the orbit of the red planet on this day. India thus joined the elite club of the countries
exploring MarsUS, Russia and Europe. It has also become the first Asian country to reach Mars planet.
While all other countries including the US and Russia, had to face initial failures, India did it in one go.
Indian Space Research Organization, ISRO, added
to its credit, besides other achievements, the unmanned
moon mission Chanderyan 1, which was launched in
2008. ISRO has been chosen for last years (2014) Indira
Gandhi prize for Peace, Disarmament and Development.
It has been chosen for the award for strengthening
international cooperation in peaceful uses of outer space.
Indias space activities which started in early 60s from
Thumba in Thiruvananthapuram have come a long way
since then. The immense potential of space technology
in national development was first realized by Dr. Vikram
Sarabhai who firmly believed that this powerful technology could play a meaningful role in solving the
problems of common man. He had said We are convinced that if we are to play a meaningful role
nationally, and in the committee of nations, we must be second to none in the application of advanced
technologies to the real problems of man and society.
Initially, the space programme focused on achieving self- reliance by developing capability to build
and launch communication satellites for television broadcasts, telecommunications and meteorological
applications as also remote sensing satellites for management of natural resources. In keeping with
objectives of ISRO to develop space technology and its application to nation building, it has operationalized
two major satellite systems. One is called Indian National Satellite (INSAT) and the other Indian Remote
Sensing (IRS). INSAT is used for communication services while the other is for management of natural
resources. ISRO uses Geostationary Satellite Launch Vehicles (GSLV) for INSAT type satellites and Polar
Satellite Launch vehicles for launching IRS type satellites. Its PSLV-C26 successfully launched IRNSS1C, the third satellite in the Indian regional Navigational satellite system ,from Satish Dhavan Space
Centre, Sriharikota. On December, ISRO successfully test fired GSLV mark III. With this launch, India is
now capable of sending astronauts into the space. India has thus become a major player in the multibillion
dollar competitive market of commercial launch market.
Prime Minister Mr .Narendra Modi has made it clear that he wants to expand the Indian space
programme and had asked ISRO to develop a satellite that would serve all SAARC nations. During his
Mayanmar visit he announced that the services of SAARC satellite will be extended to Mayanmar also.
This will be beneficial, among others, in the fields of health, telemedicine, and long distance education.
Indias Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM), powered by smart satellites, has shown the world the way of
doing things differently without making any sacrifice on the quality in space mission. The application
of satellites for human welfare has also been quite impressive. For instance, INSAT-3D, which became
operational in January last year, played an important role in tracking Cyclone Hudhood which hit the
east coast of India in October last. During Cyclone Phailin, which hit east coast at the same time in the
previous year, images from Kalpana played a vital role.
Indias space programme is thus set to move from one milestone to another and thus realize the dreams
of Dr. Vikram Sarabhai the father of countrys space programme.

Samskrita Bharati Organising Secretary, USA

Samskritam is the umbilical cord that inextricably connects one to ones samskriti. Samskriti
forms the essence of ones lifestyle. Not only does samskriti dictate the external actions and interactions of
a person but also his/her thoughts, decisions, and purpose in life. Why then would anyone, in a right state
of mind, break the Samskritam-cord to enter the definite path to self-destruction?
A person can have either tyaga samskriti, a life grounded in self-sacrifice and spiritual joy, or bhoga
samskriti, a life based on selfish accumulation and material pleasure. Though the great saints, leaders
and freedom fighters of India lived the life of tyaaga samskriti with a higher purpose in mind, today we,
regrettably, live a life of bhoga samskriti. We exploit and destroy our surroundings for our own benefit,
to the extent that we view nature as something to be conquered, not as something that is an integral part
of us, and of which we form an integral part. We are motivated by the desire to live comfortably and
accumulate material wealth, a habit we justify to our own restless conscience.
Samskritam is inseparably linked to our culture. By studying Samskritam and reconnecting to our
true samskriti the tyaaga samskriti, we can mold ourselves to live simply and selflessly. Learning it can
help us familiarize with our true values that we are quickly losing touch with, under the influence of the
Western world. We are moving away from Samskritam and samskriti. Our thinking has become very low.
We think that everything is meant for our bhoga, our happiness. Samskritam is the language of our Vedas,
Puranas, and other storehouses of spiritual wisdom. The relationship between culture and language is
an intimate one, for language is the vehicle of human thoughts. It teaches us to live life by dharma. Our
samskriti is based on Sanatana Dharma, which shows the way of life for all humanity. The substratum of
Dharma is based on the Vedas. The Vedas have endowed us with guidelines on all subjects necessary for
the well being of every living creature. It teaches us as to how every living being can live in harmony with
each other. This knowledge is applicable today, more than ever before.
Samskritam consists of vast treasure of: literature, science, mathematics, astrology, astronomy,
Ayurveda, and yoga. Few Indians today know that centuries before the Wright brothers came along, a
workable flying machine existed in the notes and workshop of the great rishi Bharadwaj. During the time
of Ramayana, we see the use of pushpaka vimana. Aryabhata was a Mathematician who invented zero,
and wrote the masterpiece in mathematics and astronomy, Aryabhatiya (in Samskritam). It is safe to
say that no one in the last few centuries has come close to achieving all that Aryabhata did. Way before
Newton, he had invented calculus to aid his study of the physics of planetary bodies. Similarly, before
Galileo, he accurately plotted seven of the solar systems eight planets and concluded that Earth was a
sphere that rotated on an axis and revolved around the sun. Here is a sloka from ancient Sanskrit text that
may surprise you:

This sloka from the Aryabhatiya gives the value of pi to four decimal places and acknowledges that it
is an approximate value. It also says that pi is the relationship between the diameter and circumference of
a circle. Hundreds of astonishing records exist in Samskritam text books that describe in great detail what

we see as fairly modern innovations, including functions of heart, cataract surgery, kidney stone removal,
cancer treatment, brain surgeries, iron and steel refinement, metallurgy, indoor sewage and plumbing, and
incredible architecture. The list is incomplete; it does not even begin to discuss complex music theory,
artistic techniques, and efficient economic and political ideologies.

This sloka identifies the 24 main arteries in the human body and describes their function of carrying
nutrients and oxygen through the blood to all parts of the body.
Panini, the distinguished Sanskrit grammarian of 5th century BC, is the world's first computational
grammarian. His work, Ashtadhyayi is considered to be the most comprehensive scientific grammar book
ever written for any language. According to NASA research, the method used for paraphrasing Sanskrit
is identical not only in essence but in form with current work in Artificial Intelligence. Much of what
Europeans claim as their own inventions have actually existed for centuries in India, but have, with the
decline of Samskritam, grown to be forgotten in the minds of the Indian people.
The world is currently in a state of deep Vishada, or chronic grief syndrome. We suffer from countless
diseases, depression and sadness. We have forgotten what real happiness is, unable to perceive reality
through the intoxication of selfishness, greed, and lethargy. Fortunately, Samskritam is the key to our
self-imposed jail cell of vishada. It can potentially liberate us from our own ego and unite us with the
Paramatma. The Great wealth of Indian Culture, the Bhagavat Geetha gives the remedy for this.
Samskritam is often viewed as a very difficult language to learn. This is because we try to learn it
by a European way of teaching the grammar and translation method! We do not have to rely on this
o
unnatural and ineffective method anymore. Samskrita Bharati, a one of its kind organization, is dedicated
to bringing the language of Samskritam and all its benefits to the common man. For the past 30 years,
Samskrita Bharati is untiringly working towards this goal through the revolutionary methods. It is our
duty to bring back our mothers glory once again to the main stream.

Samskrita Bharati Kuwait


Samskritam, or Sanskrit as we call it, is the core of our Bharatiya culture and tradition. This language
occupies an exalted position amongst the numerous languages of the world, as it is not just a communication
tool but is an entire 'way of life'.
There are many efforts being undertaken to restore Samskritam to its once held position of glory.
Samskrita Bharathi, is one such non-profit organization that is working to bring Samskritam back into the
mainstream. To enable the large expat Indian population in the Middle-East to benefit from this endeavour,
the work of Samskrita Bharati has started its work in Kuwait, during the Navarathri season of 2012, as
a wing of Seva Darshan Kuwait.
Samskrita Bharati is functioning in Kuwait in association with Sanskrit Department, Bharatiya Vidya
Bhavan, Kuwait. In the aim of spreading and promoting the ancient language of our motherland in our
day to day life, Samskrita Bharathi is conducting various Sanskrit shibirams (Spoken Sanskrit Camps)
across Kuwait. We also offer graduation level correspondence courses with exam centers in Kuwait.
