सर्व रत्ने (महागड्या वस्तू) दिली तरीही आयुष्याचा एक क्षणसुद्धा (वाया घालवलेला) परत मिळत नाही

Dear friends, kindly consider translating this short message in your own language and circulate it amongst your friends…It would help us to spread awareness on this important issue and do our bit to keep Sanskrit alive…I have already included the message in Hindi, Marathi and English below…please also have a look at Practical Sanskrit (also on facebook) and Samskrita Bharati

*** Request in Hindi ***

प्रिय मित्रों,

जैसे की आप ओ ज्ञात होगा, भारत की जन गणना अब अंतिम चरण में हैं | इस  इस माह जन गणना अधिकारी पुनः आपके पास आकर आपकी तथा आपके परिवार की जानकारी की पृष्ठी कर, आपका पंजीकरण करेंगे |

यह जानकारी देते समय आप अपनी मातृभाषा के साथ-साथ “ज्ञात भाषाओ” में संस्कृत भाषा का उल्लेख करना न भूलें | विचार करें, तो हम अपनी दिनचर्या में संस्कृत भाषा का प्रयोग कई बार करतें हैं – प्रातः ईश्वर-स्मरण अथवा मंत्रोच्चार से ले कर सायं-कालीन आरती के समय तक |  इसके अतिरिक्त महाशिवरात्रि, कृष्ण जन्माष्टमी, नवरात्रि व गणेशोत्सव जैसे अनेक अवसरों पर मंगलमयी मंत्र तथा श्लोकोंका पठन-मनन करते हैं |

संस्कृत भाषा को जीवित रखना हमारे हाथों में हैं | पिछले जन गणना सर्वेक्षण में संस्कृत जाननेवालों की संख्या घाट कर केवल कुछ सहस्त्र ही थी | हमें आशंका है की इस कारण इसे “मृत भाषा” घोषित किया जा सकता हैं | भाषा मृत घोषित होने पर उसके संवर्धन तथा विकास हेतु किसीभी प्रकार की निधि नहीं दी जाती – न ही उसे प्रचार-प्रसार में सरकार कोई सहायता करती है | ऐसी स्थिति में यह प्राचीन, पवित्र व भारतीय संस्कृति की आधारशिला-रुपी दैव-भाषा सदैव के लिए इतिहास की पृष्ठभूमि में लुप्त हो जाएगी |

हमारा अनवरत प्रयास ही इस भाषा को जीवित रख सकता हैं | आज संस्कृत की इस अवस्था के लिए हम सब उत्तरदायी हैं | परन्तु अब भी समय है | जब भी संभव हो, इस भाषा का प्रयोग करें व अपने परिवार तथा मित्रगणों में उसे प्रोत्साहना दें और यह सन्देश अधिकाधिक भारतीयों तक पहुँचाने का प्रयास करें | धन्यवाद |

मित्रांनो ,

भारताची जनगणना आता अंतिम टप्प्यात आली आहे आणि या महिन्यात स्वयंसेवक पुन्हा एकदा तुमच्या कडे येतील तुमची आणि तुमच्या कुटुंबियांची माहिती परत घेतली आणि नोंदवली जाईल.

माहिती भरतांना तुमची मातृभाषा जी काही असेल ती तुम्ही लिहाल पण “अवगत असलेल्या भाषा” मध्ये संस्कृत भाषा न विसरता लिहा. आणि खंर बघाल तर पूर्ण जरी नाही तरी आजही आपण ती भाषा वापरतो.संध्याकाळी दिवेलागणीला म्हंटली जाणारी स्त्रोत्रे किंवा गणपतीच्या दिवसातहोणारी सहस्त्र आवर्तने अगदी देवाच्या पूजेत किंवा लग्नात म्हंटले जाणारे मंगलमय श्लोक सगळे आपल्याला माहिती आहेत काही पाठ आहेत.

हि भाषा जिवंत ठेवणं आता आपल्या हातात आहे. कारण मागील सर्वेक्षणातसंस्कृत माहिती असलेल्या लोकांची संख्या केवळ काही हजारात आहे आणित्यामुळे तिला मृत भाषा घोषित केले जावू शकते. उलटपक्षी अरबी, फारसीमाहिती असलेले लोक बरेच जास्ती आहेत कारण काही राज्यात अगदी ठरवूरह्या भाषा पत्रकात भरल्या आहेत. मृत भाषा घोषित झाली की त्या भाषेच्याउत्कर्षासाठी कुठलाही निधी दिला जात नाही. आणि मग आपली ही पुरातन आणि पवित्र भाषा कायम स्वरूपी काळाच्या पडद्याआड जाईल.

तुमचा जाणीवपूर्वक केलेला प्रयत्न ह्या भाषेला जिवंत ठेवू शकतो. आजआपल्याच भाषेवर ही वेळ येण्यास आपण सगळेच जबाबदार आहोत पणअजून वेळ गेली नाही. जेवढी जमत असेल तेवढी गम्मत म्हणून का होईनावापरा जर तुम्हाला हा विचार पटत असेल तर जरूर आपल्या मित्रांना सुद्धा सांगा.

Dear friends,

As you know, the Indian census is in its final stages and census officials will visit you once again to verify your details and register your household.

When filling in the information related to languages, please do not forget to mention “Sanskrit” amongst the additional languages spoken/known. If you pause to think, you probably use “Sanskrit” several times during the day – from the time of your morning prayers to the lighting of lanp in the evening. And of course Sanskrit mantras and shlokas are an inseparable part of major sacred festivals including MahaShivRatri, ShriKrishna JanmAshtami and NavRatri.

It is in our hands to keep Sanskrit alive. The last census revealed the number of Sanskrit speakers to be fewer than thousand. There is a possibiliy that based on these dwindling numbers, Sanskrit might be declared a dead language. If this happens, it is likely to loose state support, grants and funds for further development. In such a situation, this ancient and sacred language might be lost forever.

We should strive to ensure this does not happen. We ourselves are responsible for the situation in which Sanskrit finds itself today. But we still have time. Please use this language whenever possible and please try and spread this message amongst your friends and family.

प्रिय मित्रहरु !
तपाँईहरुलाई थाहा नै छ होला की भारतको जन गणना अब अन्तिम चरणमा छ । यो महिनामा जन गणना अधिकारी पुनः तपाँईहरुको धरधरमा आएर जानकारी को पुष्टि गरेर पञ्जीकरण गर्नेछन्।

यो जानकारी दिँदा समयमा आफ्नो मातृभाषाको साथसाथमा “ज्ञात भाषाहरु” मा संस्कृत भाषाको उल्लेख गर्न न भूलौं । विचार गर्नुहोस ! हामी आफ्नो दिनचर्यामा संस्कृत भाषाको प्रयोग धेरै पटक गर्छै – प्रातः ईश्वर-स्मरण अथवा मन्त्रोच्चारदेखि सायं-कालीन आरतीको समय सम्म । यस्को अतिरिक्त महाशिवरात्रि, कृष्ण जन्माष्टमी, नवरात्रि र गणेशोत्सव जस्ता अनेक अवसरमा पर मङ्गलमयी मन्त्र तथा श्लोकहरु पठनमनन गर्छैं ।

संस्कृत भाषालाई जीवित राख्ने काम हाम्रो हातमा छ । पहिलाको जन गणना सर्वेक्षणमा संस्कृत जानेहरुको की सङ्ख्या घटेर केवल केहि सहस्त्र मात्र भयो । हाम्रो आशङ्का के छ भने यो कारणले संस्कृतलाई “मृत भाषा” घोषित गर्न पनि सक्छन् । भाषा मृत घोषित भएपछि यस्को संवर्धन तथा विकास हेतु केहिपनि प्रकारको निधि दिईदैन – र सरकार पनि यस्को प्रचारप्रसारमा सहायता गर्दैन । यस्तो स्थितिमा यो प्राचीन, पवित्र र भारतीय संस्कृतिको आधारशिला रुपी दैव भाषा सधैकोलाई इतिहासको पृष्ठभूमिमा लुप्त हुनेछ ।

हाम्रो अनवरत प्रयत्नले यो भाषालाई जीवित रख्न सक्छैं ।आज संस्कृतको यो अवस्था हुनुमा हामि सबै उत्तरदायी छौं । परन्तु अहिले पनि समय छ । सम्भव भएसम्म यो भाषाको प्रयोग गरौं र आफ्नो परिवार तथा मित्रगणमा यस्लाई प्रोत्साहना दिउँ र यो सन्देश अधिकाधिक भारतीयहरुसम्म पुर्‍याउन प्रयत्न गरौं । धन्यवाद ।

ప్రియమైన మిత్రులారా,

భారతీయ జనగణన చిట్టచివరి దశలో ఉందని, గణనాంక అధికారులు మరొక్కసారి మిమ్ములను కలిసి మీ వివరాలను తెలుసుకొని నమోదు చేస్తారన్న విషయం మీకు తెలిసే ఉంటుంది.

భాషలకు సంబంధించిన సమాచారాన్ని నింపుతున్నప్పుడు, ‘ఇతర భాషల ‘ వివరాలలో ‘సంస్కృతాన్ని ‘ చేర్చడం మరచిపోకండి. మన దైనందిన జీవితంలో సంస్కృతానికి వాడుకలేదన్నది మనలో చాలామందికి ఉన్న అపోహ. కానీ, మనమొక్కసారి ఆలోచిస్తే, ప్రొద్దున్న చేసే ఈశ్వర ప్రార్ఢన నుంచీ సాయంత్రం సంధ్యా దీపాన్ని వెలిగించే వరకూ రోజులో మనం ఎన్నోసార్లు సంస్కృతాన్ని ఉపయోగిస్తున్నాము. సంస్కృత మంత్రాలు, శ్లోకాలు, మహాశివరాత్రి, జన్మాష్టమి, నవరాత్రి వంటి పండుగలన్నింటిలో స్మరించుకుంటూనే ఉంటాము.

మన సంస్కృత భాషని రక్షించుకోవడం మన చేతులలో ఉంది. క్రిందటి గణనాంక వివరాల ప్రకారం, ఈ దేవ భాషని మాట్లాడే వారి సంఖ్య వెయ్యి లోపే ఉంది. ఈ విధంగా సంఖ్య తగ్గడం ద్వారా, సంస్కృత భాషని మృత భాష గా ప్రకటించే పరిస్థితి కనబడుతోంది. ఇదే జరిగితే భాషాభివృధ్ధికై ప్రభుత్వం నుండి వచ్చే నిధులు, గ్రాంట్లు నిలిచిపోతాయి. ప్రాచీనమైన, పవిత్రమైన, మన భారతీయ సంస్కృతికి మూలాధారమైన మన దేవ భాషని శాశ్వతంగా కోల్పోతాము.

ఈ విధంగా జరగకుండా చూసుకోవలసిన బాధ్యత మనందరిపైనా ఉంది. సంస్కృత భాషకి ఈ గతి పట్టడానికి మనందరమే కారణము. కానీ ఇంకా సమయం మించిపోలేదు. అమృతతుల్యమైన మన భాషని వీలైనంతగా వినియోగిద్దాం, ఈ సందేశాన్ని మన స్నేహితులకూ, హితులకూ, కుటుంబ సభ్యులకూ అందిద్దాం.తద్వారా మన అత్యంత ప్రాచీనమైన భాషని కాపాడుకుందాం.

నమో భారతం, నమో సంస్కృతం.

સંસ્ક્રુત અને સંસ્ક્રુતિ – એક નમ્ર નિવેદન

પ્રિય મિત્રો,

આપણા બધાને જાણકારી છે, કે ભારત મા વસ્તી ગણત્રી આખરી તબ્બકામાં છે. આ મહિનામાં વસ્તી ગણત્રીના અઘિકારી ફરી પાછા તમારા નિવાસસ્થાને આવીને તમારા પરિવારના સદસ્યની નોંધણી કરશે.
ભાષા સંબંધિત જાણકારી આપતી વખતે “વસ્તી ગણત્રી પત્રકમાં” આપ આપણી માતૃભાષાની સાથે-સાથે “અન્યભાષાઓમાં” સંસ્ક્રુત ભાષાનુ ઉલ્લેખન કરવાનુ ન ભૂલશો. વિચાર કરિએ તો આપણે આપણી દિનચર્યામા સંસ્ક્રુત ભાષાનુ ઘણી વાર ઉપયોગ કરીએ છે. જેમકે સવારે અને સાંજ ભગવાન પાસે દીવો અને પ્રાર્થના કરતી વખતે, તેમજ શ્લોક અને મંત્રોના ઉચ્ચારણમાં પણ સંસ્ક્રુત ભાષા જ બોલીયે છે. મોટા ભાગના મુખ્ય તહેવારો જેવાકે મહાશિવરાત્રી, જન્ષ્મટમી અને નવરાત્રી સાથે સંસ્ક્રુતભાષા તથા સંસ્ક્રુતી જોડાયેલ છે.

સંસ્ક્રુત ભાષાને જીવંત રાખવી એ આપણા હાથમાં છે. પાછલી જનગણત્રીના પરિણામમાં સંસ્ક્રુત ભાષા જાણનારની સંખયા હજાર થી પણ ઓછી જોવા મળી હતી. એના પરિણામ સ્વરુપે સંસ્ક્રુત ભાષા “મૃત ભાષા” ઘોષિત થવાની શક્યતા ધરાવે છે. તેથી સંસ્ક્રુત ભાષાના વિકાસ અને પ્રચાર અર્થે મળતી તમામ સરકારી અને આર્થિક સુવિધાઓ મળતી બંધ થવાની સંભાવના રહે છે. અવિ સ્થિતિમાં આ પ્રાચીન, પવિત્ર અને ભારતીય સંસ્ક્રુતિની આધારશિલા-રૂપી દૈવી ભાષા સદેવ માટે ઇતિહાસની પ્રુષ્ટભૂમી પરથી લુપ્ત થઇ જશે.

આપણા અનાવરત પ્રયાસથીજ આ ભાષાને જીવંત રાખી શકાસે. આજે સંસ્ક્રુત ભાષાની આવી અવસ્થા માટે આપણેજ જવાબદાર છે. હજી પણ સમય છે. જ્યારે પણ સંભવ થાય ત્યારે સંસ્ક્રુત ભાષાનો ઉપયોગ કરવો અને પરિવાર તથા મિત્રજનો ને સંસ્ક્રુત ભાષાનો ઉપયોગ કરવા માટે પ્રોત્સાહિત કરવુ. આ સંદેશ દરેક ભારતીય સુધી પહોંચાડવાની નમ્ર વિનંતિ.

ધન્યવાદ,

|| નમો ભારતમ્, નમો સંસ્ક્રુતમ્ ||

“Ghosh’s body was recovered from a field near his house this afternoon. Primary investigations have revealed that poverty and debt led to the incident,” said Bankura SP Vishal Garg.

Following this, the farmer consumed poison and died.

>> Admn probing Rourkela suicide, 02 Jan 2010

ROURKELA: An administrative inquiry into suicide of a young loanee farmer Guru Charan Naik is yet to arrive at any conclusion.

Naik, a marginal farmer of village Kirei in Sundargarh Sadar block, consumed poison on Monday afternoon. Investigation revealed on the fateful day, Naik had left his house in the forenoon. On return, he requested a motor-cyclist to drop him at his house and on the way he told the motor-cyclist that he consumed poison. Reports said he availed a cooperative loan of Rs 11,000 in September, 2008, which mounted to Rs 12,198 with interest. Two days before his death Naik had also took a private loan of Rs 14,000 in his wife Aswani’s name on a promise to return Rs 300 a week. Aswini said her husband was under mental strain for poor crop yield this season and crumbling family economy. Besides his wife, Naik was looking after his visually-challenged father, a five-year-old son and two unmarried women relatives by cultivating 2.5 acres of virtually barren land. At times he worked as daily labourer. Attributing the suicide to poor crop yield and loan burden, Sundargarh District Congress president RK Sarangi demanded compensation of Rs 5 lakh to the bereaved family and employment assistance to the widow. Tahasildar Prahlad Pradhan said they are awaiting more information before drawing any conclusion, but admitted Naik suffered crop loss this season. An ex gratia of Rs 5,000 and rice for two months were provided to the family.

Lets remember to pray and work for “अन्नदाता सुखी भवं| (Annadata Sukhi Bhavam, means the food donor/provider be always healthy and happy)” after lunch/dinner along with family friends. I do that. The prayer includes farmers, labors, and cook, and now we don’t even bother to know about their condition and even dont recognize their existence.
Land lords and Sahukars (private money lenders)  keep exploiting the class in need and we don’t feel the necessity to raise voice against that because we dont feel the heat directly though we feel indirectly through inflation. This (our ignorance) is a pyre we are preparing (not only for farmers but) for ourselves and future generations because when the current generation’s 40% farmers are not willing to farm the food scarcity is inevitable. And to tell the fate of our future no astrologer is needed. So citizens wake and join the effort to stop atrocities on farmers. Report every exploitation/torture you hear/see, oppose wherever possible, help farmers as long as feasible.
जय भारत!

कृषी एक कला, कृषी एक संयम, कृषी एक समर्पण, कृषी एक आधार…

Posted by Sandeep Shelke on 2nd January 2010

I think we need to discuss agriculture in its true perspective barring all the commercialization around it for time being. Because, I believe it such a profession in the world which is directly related to every soul on the face of earth.

Here is what I think:

“कृषी एक कला, कृषी एक संयम, कृषी एक समर्पण, कृषी एक आधार.”

1. कृषी एक कला [Farming is an Art]:

If we consider all the implications around farming, we can realize that Farming is one of very superior and rich form of art in the living world. Farmers have to consider natural calamities, water availability, need, budget, work capacity, labour management, sales, marketing and many more… It is difficult for any other profession to do all these jobs single-handedly. But now they are failing to do so why? Does this mean its an outdated art now?

2. कृषी एक संयम [Farming is Patience]:

When a farmer sows seeds, for example paddy/onion/wheat, he has to nurture the farm till it yields; that is somewhere around 4 months without any returns. Farmers just invest their resources be it money, time, efforts, heart… and wait till yielding day. But still they did it successfully in past. But now they are failing, why? Have they lost patience?

3. कृषी एक समर्पण [Farming is Devotion]:

At every rubbi/kharip season farmer prepares for another season by forgetting all failures and obstacles in past. Farmer gears up for the new inning with full devotion and dedication. The devotion and dedication are without any limits. Like farmer sales/mortgages everything to fund the crop expenses, sleeps in the field, eats in the field; with the hope that crop will yield good returns and then he/she can recover the investment. And they were successfully achieving the targets. But now they are failing to recover the capital too let aside the profit and their labour charges, why? Aren’t they dedicated and devoted any more?

4. कृषी एक आधार [Farming is a Support]:

In a true sense farming is the main support for living world. Farmers work in fields and produce much-needed food. [What they get in return is a well-known fact. Like free electricity, but only for 4Hrs a day, subsidy on swelled prices of seeds (earlier home-grown seed used to cost only Rs.10-15 per Kg and now the company manufactured costs Rs.2000 per Kg), which farmers never ask, but politicians do]. Think for a while what would happen if farmers start killing themselves like they are doing now(200000+ (0.2million) farmers have committed suicide since 1997). From where we would get the food to serve our daily needs? Earlier there wasn’t any need to think about their support as it was there and it is there now too. But nowadays farmers are loosing support from both community and government, why? have they stopped supporting us?

What will happen ifAlso the large scale survey shows that given a chance almost 40% farmers are willing to quit farming permanently this comes to reality? Read full article here.

“कृषितोनास्ति दुर्भिक्षं” – Dearth of farming is famine.

So I think for our own betterment we need to do some self-check to do the justice and extent our support towards the needy section of the society.

Open for discussion/comments.

जय भारत!

कृषितोनास्ति दुर्भिक्षं – Dearth of Agriculture is Famine

Posted by Sandeep Shelke on 2nd January 2010

While browsing on internet I came across this very meaningful quote about farming and agricultural.  This Sanskrit proverb makes it very clear where the whole world is leading. In the times ahead there will be less agriculture so less will be the farm yields and if that is true then Famine is inevitable.

So very truly said:

कृषितोनास्ति दुर्भिक्षं

[kRuShitOnaasti durbhikShaM]

{Dearth of Agriculture is Famine}

(शेतीची कमतरता म्हणजे अन्नाचे दुर्भिक्ष)

What you all say?

जय भारत!
