Many people in the Triratna Buddhist Community know Amoghasiddhi for his kind and welcoming smile, as well as his tireless Dharma work for our sangha in Nagpur, India. Now part of the ordination team in India, as well as a member of Indian Public Preceptors Kula, Amoghasiddhi has been ordained for over 30 years. In this moving interview with Candradasa, originally recorded back in 2018 for the Fifty Years, Fifty Voices Project, the pair cover a lot of ground, including Amoghasiddhi's love of poetry and a visit Bhante Urgyen Sangharakshita made to Nagpur in 1992. Amoghasiddhi describes the sight of 70,000 people attending the speech Sangharakshita gave at the same place where, in 1956, he had addressed a grief stricken crowd of over 250,000 followers of Dr Ambedkar, after the latter's unexpected death. When Sangharakshita gave that speech in 1992, there were just four Order members in Nagpur. As Amoghasiddhi happily recalls: "Bhante said, 'Nagpur needs 100 Order members…' Well we are very glad to tell you there are now over a 100 Order Members, and four main [Triratna Buddhist] Centres..." A lovely conversation, with a lovely, inspiring man. Extracts from this talk were used for the Fifty Years, Fifty Voices project: Visit the Fifty Years, Fifty Voices on The Buddhist Centre Online
About Haldiram's:Hello everyone, I am kicking off a mini-series based on the research I do for The One Percent Project conversations.Prep for every guest conversation leads me into some fascinating rabbit holes about people, companies and industries. So, I plan to share some of these stories and insights through this mini-series. I hope you enjoy them. Here is the first one. While doing my research on Ahana Gautam and Open Secret, which is on a mission to un-junk the Indian snack industry, I stumbled upon the Namkeen Industry of India. Namkeen in Hindi means snack. It is a $ 15 billion industry in India. No conversation on namkeens would be complete without mentioning, Haldiram's, India's No.1 Namkeen brand. Haldiram's 85+ years of history is an MBA in itself. It is fascinating to learn how Gangabhishenji Agarwal, fondly known as Haldiram, in 1918 kicked off the making of a Rs 5000 Cr, USD ~600M, brand, which is now a household name in India.Haldiram was a school dropout who started working at his father's bhujia shop early in his life and eventually became an outlier among ~300 other bhujia sellers in Bikaner through product innovation, branding, marketing, pricing and opportunistic expansion.Production InnovationHaldiram started his journey from his family snack stall in Bhujiya Bazar in Bikaner. He reinvented his aunt's bhujia recipe to what we know as Haldiram's bhujia. He made it with moth beans, a type of lentil. This changed the taste and made the bhujia more crispy. The new bhujia was an instant hit among consumers.Branding/ Marketing:He named the bhujia "Dungar Sev" after the name of then popular Maharaja Dungar Singha. Here is a great example of Influencer Marketing from the 1930s.Pricing:Bhujia was a commodity. But given the popularity of "Dungar Sev", Haldiram raised the price from 2 paise/kg to 5 paise/kg. It made Haldiram's bhujia a premium product, and sales kept growing.Expansion:From 1937 to 2000, Haldiram's had grown to 4 cities Bikaner, Calculta, Nagpur and Delhi. Expansion into Nagpur was a challenge and an opportunity. Nagpur or the whole of Maharashtra, a state in India, in the 1960s, was not interested in bhujia and was not exposed to many snacks.In the 2000s, they diversified into sweets, which brought the next age of growth for Haldiram's. They went on to add 400+ products which include snacks, sweets, cookies, pickles and much more. They also went international and set up a base in the US, Canada, UK, UAE, Sri Lanka and Thailand.Today, Haldiram's valuation has crossed $3 Billion, and the business has now spread to 80+ countries. Haldiram's present-day success is not only the outcome of Gangabhisenji's courage to break out and try something new but also the vision his sons and grandsons have had in this 85-year journey. I will stop there; let you ponder how a bhujia wala from Bikaner landed up, creating a Namkeen empire. However, the journey of building the empire has not been a straight line. If you found this interesting, refer to Ajuniorvc.com's blog on Haldiram's and the book Bhujia Barons. If you liked this mini-episode, share it with someone who would find it valuable. You can drop me a line at email@example.com and tell me how else will be interesting to look into. Until next time.

Sucimani interviews Vijaya and for the Fifty Years, Fifty Voices Project. Vijaya shares movingly about the suffering she faced growing up in a slum near Nagpur railway station, losing her younger brother and father in quick succession and, subsequently, having to fight periods of depression. Later in life a visiting Dharmachari would come and teach her meditation and in her own words she recalls ‘this is where life is'. So deeply grateful and inspired by this encounter, both herself and her older brother would go on to ask for ordination and become members of the Triratna Buddhist Order. Other topics of discussion include a vivid encounter with Green Tara and what it's like to be part of a lineage of discipleship that goes right back to the Buddha: that flow initiated by Urgyen Sangharakshita when he ordained Srimala, Srimala in turn ordaining Vijaya… Now, a Private Preceptor herself, Vijaya recalls the period of growth she experienced during the first ordinations, and what it's like to pass on that thread through ordaining other women. This conversation was originally recorded at the Triratna Buddhist Order's International Order Convention in Bodhgaya, India in 2018. Extracts from this talk were used for the 50 Years, 50 Voices project - visit the dedicated space on The Buddhist Centre Online for more.

*SAVE NATURE* : Max Temperatures recorded in some Indian cities: ☀Lucknow 47 degrees ☀Delhi 47 degrees ☀Agra 45 degrees ☀Nagpur 49 degrees ☀Kota 48 degrees ☀Hyderabad 45 degrees ☀Pune 42 degrees ☀Ahmedabad 46 degrees ☀ Mumbai 42 degrees ☀ Nashik 40 degrees ☀Bangalore 40 degrees ☀ Chennai 45 degrees ☀Rajkot 45 degrees Next years these cities will cross 50 degrees. Even AC or fan will not save us in summer.. Why is it so hot ??? In last 10 years over 10 crore trees were cut for widening roads and highways. But not more than a lakh trees have been planted by govt. or public. How to make India cool ??? Please do not wait for government to plant trees. Sowing seeds or planting trees does not cost much. Just collect seeds of Shatavari, Bel, Peeple, Tulsi, Mango, Lemon, Jamun, Neem, Custard Apple, Jack fruit, etc. Then dig two-three inch hole on open spaces, roadside, footpaths, highways, gardens and also in your society or bungalow. Bury these seeds in each hole with soil and then water them every two days in summer. In rainy season no need to water them. After 15 to 30 days small plants will be born. Let us make this a National movement and plant 10 crore trees all over India. We should stop temperature from crossing 50 degrees..... Please plant maximum trees and forward this message to everyone. Lets distribute saplings as return gifts during functions, birthdays etc. *1 person - 1 plant* We will easily reach 10 crore plants

In February, it was reported that Accenture was setting up offices in Jaipur and Coimbatore. With this move, the company aims to access more talent and give its employees greater flexibility regarding where they want to work from. In the past, Accenture has primarily operated in Indian metros. In March, IBM Consulting told a financial daily that it was opening new IBM Client Innovation Centres in Kochi and Coimbatore. And in December last year, Tata Consultancy Services had announced that it would invest 100 million dollars to establish a new outsourcing facility in Indore. Infosys has also earmarked 27 million dollars for a software centre in Indore. The IT giant is also investing a similar amount to set up a campus in Nagpur. In September last year, Wipro had opened a software hub in Vishakhapatnam that will employ 2,000 people. Meanwhile Zoho is taking things a notch further. In March last year, it had announced that it would open additional satellite offices, which seat 20 to 30 employees, in rural and non-urban areas across India. Then, in September, Zoho said that it had plans to hire about 2,000 people for its rural offices by December end. These are not isolated incidents, but part of a broader trend that started some time before the pandemic for some companies, and then found broader traction with the overall tech industry once the full effects of the pandemic were felt. Citing a Pareekh Consultants' study, a financial daily has said that IT, IT-enabled services, and engineering services companies have created a physical presence in 27 tier-II cities. These cities include the likes of Kakinada, Vizag and Vijayawada. Clearly, tier-II cities have been the biggest beneficiaries as tech firms look beyond the metros. However, reports and industry insiders suggest that tier-III cities also stand to benefit. Nasscom Senior VP & Chief Strategy Officer Sangeeta Gupta told Business Standard that the digitization tsunami, as well as the acceptance and expanding investment in new technologies, has raised demand for digital skills. This, she says, has resulted in a talent war that is widening the demand-supply imbalance. Businesses can overcome the talent shortage by recruiting workers in smaller cities, thanks to innovative working models that remove geographical restrictions. According to Gupta, with significant cost arbitrage, thriving infrastructure, and smart city efforts, tier-II cities have become more appealing for tapping into talent pools. The NASSCOM strategic review 2022 revealed that currently over 35 technology companies have 50+ delivery locations and are further growing their coverage across Tier-2 and Tier-3 cities. Tech Mahindra has been one of the early adopters of this trend. And the factors that have driven its decisions shed light on why IT companies are aggressively looking beyond the metros. So, what are the other factors driving this trend? First, the adoption of the work from home model due to the Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted that employees don't need to be based in metro cities to execute projects. Many young employees had to return to the smaller cities from where they hailed due to work from home. Companies will find that some of them might be hesitant in returning to metros with its hour-long office commutes and sky-high rents. As dining and entertainment options in these smaller cities catch up with the bigger metros, there's even less of a motivation for young graduates to leave their hometowns. Tech companies are also adopting worker-centric models thanks to the pandemic. And, they have good reason to do so. Microsoft conducted a survey of 30,000 employees and found that 80 per cent wanted to work remotely. A Zerodha survey found that only 8 per cent of employees wanted to return to the office full time. Meanwhile, 67 per cent said that they would move to Tier-II or Tier-III cities and towns if working from home was allowed permanently.

Part of the International conference on Maharashtra in September 2021 - Devkumar Ahire, SPPU, Pune In the colonial state many things were created, constructed and formed. This is why complex social realities appear to have come into shape in the colonial situations. The complex relationship between the 'civil rights' given by the state of the law and the 'religious freedom' inherited from the colonial complex seems to have solidified the Communalism. Due to print capitalism, education system and nationalism, 'traditionalism' took shape in the framework of modernity. It combines religion and politics. All of these changes can be systematically understood through the Cow protection movement. Cow and cow slaughtering has been one of the most shocking aspects of Colonial Indian politics. This question came under British rule as the greatest threat to the country's peace. Because cow slaughtering was a religious right for all Muslims and for Hindus, religious freedom was at stake. The question of cows intensified due to the confusion of the laws of the princely states, customary practices and the confusion of British laws. In the pre-colonial period, the cow appears to have been used as a political instrument of the ruling class. But during the colonial period when the cow protection movement started, the cow became the instrument of mass political mobilization. At that time, the cow became the instrument of mass political mobilization. As a result of this, On the occasion of the cow protection movement, communalism was swiftly promoted and the transmission of communalism went from city to village as well as from elite class to the Subaltern mass. Nagpur in the Marathi region has been called the heart of this movement. It had its own printing press and full-time male- female activist campaigning for the spread of the movement. Through free books, cultural events, leaflets, leaflets, the movement is expanded and penetrated in various fields. The focus of research paper will be on Cow protection movement of Maharashtra so references of Marathi newspapers, biographies, autobiographies, magazines and other sources will be used.

The Multi-Mode Hand Grenades were manufactured by Economic Explosives Limited (EEL) following Transfer of Technology from Terminal Ballistics Research Laboratory of Defence Research & Development Organisation (DRDO). They were handed over to the Indian Army in the presence of Union defence minister Rajnath Singh in Nagpur, Maharashtra on August 24, 2021. The grenade is not just more lethal, but is safer to use. It has a distinctive design that gives flexibility of employment in both defensive (fragmentation) and offensive (stun) modes. It has a highly accurate delay time, very high reliability in usage and safe for carriage. These new grenades will replace Grenade No 36 of World War I vintage design, which had been continuing in service till date. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/chsushilrao/message

It cultimated in the Nagpur-based team lifting its maiden Ranji Trophy crown in 2017-18. Akshay Wakhare, the veteran offspinner who has witnessed the rise of Vidarbha cricket, takes us back to the season that changed Vidarbha cricket forever.
PUSHING VALUE-FOR-VALUE Thank you to the Bowl After Bowl Episode 92 Executive Producer Jamie for mailing nutraceuticals to the bowl for mom and baby wolf cub! If you've passed the bowl to a friend who has yet to donate, call them out as a MOOCH and point them in the right direction! Bowl After Bowl is a value-for-value podcast supported exclusively by the bowlers out there. No creepy advertisers or native ads. If you receive value, give some back to the bowl in the form of cuckbucks, crypto, art, ISOs, jingles, or even voicemails: (816) 607-3663 We had so much fun last Friday with Carolyn Blaney who joined us in the bowl for our latest episode of Bowls with Buds. Thank you, darling! CRYPTO COGNIZANCE Boosts are down in the Sphinx tribe as more and more people report trouble with the app. Four and five-digit boosts haven't been coming through on our end, so go ahead and break those down into smaller boosts for the time being. METAL MOMENT The Rev Cyber Trucker is back with another Metal Moment, this time from the Land of the Rising Sun! Check out the J-rock band NINGEN ISU with Heartless Scat. TOP THREE 33 Did you know there will be33 sporting events in the Tokyo Olympics or that 33% of Americans approve of Biden's handling of the border according to the Daily Mail? There were only 907 respondents to their survey. A domestic dispute led toa 33-hour standoff for Pennsylvania police officers with one victim losing her eye after being shot in the face. Meanwhile, Australia is dealing with it's second donation bin death -- this time of a33-year-old mom standing on a plastic bucket to peer in which slipped out from under her, causing her upper body to get stuck under the hinged opening while her feet dangled. Asphyxiation was her ultimate cause of death. Oh, and once again there is a story about33 cats + 12 kittens being rescued from an Illinois home. THE NEVERENDING COOF 33 deaths: Indonesia, Kamuli District (Uganda) 33 new cases: Alberta, the Pee Dee region of South Carolina, and Wisconsin A 33-year-old London dad who jokingly told a man the chippy wouldn't let him in with his mask on ended up being stabbed in the eye, which will remain stitched for a year and ultimately replaced with a prosthetic. BEHIND THE CURTAIN 33 kilograms of ganja were seized by Nagpur cops out of a train station toilet stall. That's 72.75 pounds, bowlers! Police found it while making the rounds with their bomb-sniffing dogs. Sha'Carri Richardson will not be competing in the Olympics because of a THC positive drug test. She is serving a one-month suspension. A reporter broke the news to her of her biological mother passing away a few days before the 2020 United States Olympic Trials and she admits to using weed in her legal state of Oregon to cope. Hours before it was scheduled for a House floor vote, Delaware adult use bill, House Bill 150, was removed from the agenda. The bill's primary sponsor, Representative Ed Osienski, said the vote was cancelled because they did not have the 3/4 (31) votes necessary to pass it with its proposed social equity fund. Had they removed the fund, they would only need a 3/5 majority. Delaware's earliest opportunity for legalization is January 2022. In 2015, a decriminalization bill passed and another bill expanded it to minors in 2019, but folks are still being arrested and locked up when caught with more than an ounce. Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf signed House Bill 1024 into law, increasing the amount of pot medical patients can legally possess from a 30-day supply to 90. They may also use telehealth and curbside pickup. Caregivers are no longer restricted to the amount of patients they can care for and more eligible conditions have been added: cancer remission therapy and central nervous system-related neuropathy. As of July 1st, South Dakota patients will no longer be arrested for possessing three ounces or less of cannabis...as long as they alert the law enforcement officer of their condition and provide documentation from a doctor since they won't be able to get a card until this fall. The state's Department of Health shared its preliminary list of conditions covered by the medical program, which include AIDS/HIV, ALS, MS, cancer, Crohn's, epilepsy, glaucoma, and PTSD as well as any "debilitating medical condition" which was the language voters passed in 2020. The secretary of health says a process will be available for South Dakotans to petition to add more conditions in the future. Last Wednesday, a North Carolina Senate committee voted for the first medical marijuana proposal in the state's history with overwhelming support. It has two more committee hearings before going to the Senate floor for a vote. FIRST TIME I EVER This week the bowlers called and texted to tell us about the first time they ever came in a room. Thank you Carolyn Blaney for this week's hilarious #FTIE! Next Tokin' Tuesday we want to hear from YOU! Tell us about the first time you ever came outside, courtesy of the lovely quirkess. FUCK IT, DUDE. LET'S GO BOWLING. Employees of Kansas City's PB&J Restaurant Group who have worked there for 15 years were thanked for their service with a Harley Davidson motorcycle.

As daily covid cases rise over 4 lakhs, India is struggling to breathe. There is an increasing number of people dying across the country simply due to a lack of oxygen. The Delhi High Court and the Supreme Court lock horns to ensure oxygen supply to Delhi, while people in other states move to the courts as well. On this episode of The Suno India Show, host Suryatapa Mukherjee explores how we got here and how we can solve this issue. Contributing Editor Menaka Rao speaks to SD Mishra, the Controller of Explosives at Nagpur headquarters. He says that India is producing enough oxygen for its needs but it is transportation that is the issue. See sunoindia.in/privacy-policy for privacy information.
India is facing an overwhelming COVID-19 surge. Cases continue to rise, with record cases reported daily. Among a decline in cases in February, the government loosened restrictions, so we were all caught off-guard. The country's healthcare system is collapsing, with supplies running low/out, and more and more deaths reported daily. Many of us have family and friends suffering. Along with friend-of-the-Pod (and fellow Desi), we process our thoughts not just on India, but how we need to remain vigilant, and thoughtful about the pandemic around us. We are not out of the woods, by any stretch or measure. Even with the terrible situation in India, this pandemic is so much bigger. Smarter people are talking about what this means for all of us - so you should go read and listen to what they're saying. Here's a quick summary: https://mobile.twitter.com/DrTomFrieden/status/1388172436999376899 Beyond just getting your vaccine as soon as you can - we need to get still WEAR MASKS, avoid crowds, maintain social distance, and make smart decisions - not just for yourself, but those around us.

In this episode we're discussing fire safety rules in public buildings, including hospitals. Over the past few weeks there have been deadly fires in hospital buildings, including those treating COVID-19 patients, compounding what is already a severe crisis that the country is facing. The most recent incident was on May 1, when at least 18 people died after a fire broke out in a COVID hospital in Bharuch in Gujarat. A spate of recent hospital fires has also been reported from Maharashtra, at Virar, a suburb of Mumbai, and Mumbra near Thane and earlier in the year at Nagpur. Fires breaking out in buildings, big and small across India is not a new phenomenon. The National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) says 330 people died in commercial building fires in 2019, while fatalities for residential or dwelling buildings were much higher at 6,329. Electrical faults are cited as the leading cause of fires, but State governments are also widely criticised for being lax with building safety laws and for failing to equip public buildings with modern technology. What are the laws and regulations regarding fire safety and how much or how little various State governments comply with them? In this episode we try and answer the question of whether these incidents have been avoided with better compliance of the laws and what can be done in the future to prevent them.

Kinita Schripsema joins us for the 2nd time! As our first return guest she has some amazing things happening in her and her husband Ken's life right now. She tells about their upcoming move to Nagpur, India. We talk a little about the pandemic of covid-19 and how we are both doing. Also, she gives some great advice and bible verses to read. Here are a few of my favorite things she said: “Delayed Obedience is still disobedience” “Peace comes after the Yes.” “Each of us is called and challenged in our own journeys to obey where we are” “How are we preparing before the crisis comes? In the same way, how are we preparing before the call comes?" “Really take a hold of what your self care looks like” "Spread Calm." "How can we be encouraging to those around us?" "Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks." Scriptures: Matthew 6:25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?” Matthew 6:34 “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of it's own.” If you'd like to connect more with Kinita about her business and her partnership with India, or how you can support her, please email her at: firstname.lastname@example.org Or follow their journey through Facebook: @seemaglobalconsulting
About 70 million years ago, a limbless reptile crunched into dinosaur eggs to slurp out its contents, which included a squirming hatchling. But this beanfest collapsed under a wet blanket of mud. When you think of fossils you imagine grimy skeletons or frozen silhouettes of creatures from eons ago. The last supper -- story of an extraordinary fossil But then there are those rare gems. Fossils that zoom beyond anatomy. That bullhorn behaviour. This is a tale of discovery and rediscovery. The chronicle of an extraordinary fossil. One that doesn't merely frame a picture of the past, but pans into its action. To part the curtain on this drama, we've got to travel to Nagpur, a city wedged in the heart of India.
It's been two years since loan waivers had been announced by the Maharashtra government. A huge number of farmers have still not been able to get benefits from the government. Farmers are discontented as there is constant pressure from the banks. In the year 2017, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis had announced the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Krishi Samman Yojna. Under the scheme, farm loans upto Rs 1.5 lakh rupees were promised to be waived off. To check how successful the government has been in fulfilling the promise, The Quint's Election Chaupal reached Nagardhan village in the Lok Sabha constituency of Ramtek.
“The 'mahagathbandhan' is a baseless, senseless, and visionless alliance,” said Vishlesh Godhani, an engineering student from Nagpur. Many others echoed Godhani's thoughts as The Quint's chaupal reached Nagpur to speak to the citizens ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
