Famous love letters

November 2, 1856I already love in you your beauty, but I am only beginning to love in you that which is eternal and ever precious - your heart, your soul. Beauty one could get to know and fall in love with in one hour and cease to love it as speedily; but the soul one must learn to know. Believe me, nothing on earth is given without labour, even love, the most beautiful and natural of feelings.
Count Leo Tolstoy, Russian writer, to Valeria Arsenev, his fiance

The nobility of management has to flow from the top

What we often hear is death in police custody. But in Madhya Pradesh news of police committing suicide is appearing at regular intervals. Yesterday a sub inspector committed suicide in uniform, on duty, in the control room of Dhaar.

Distress from family problems and health issue is exposed by the police authorities in Dhaar. Other cases of police suicide are still mysteries for everyone till date

One has to know the reason and the cause behind the deaths of policemen in MP through suicide. We all know Policing comes with many challenges. It can be diverse, exciting, unpredictable and satisfying.

Perception of police has been changing with us over a period of time. We always seemingly see three roles of police crime control, order maintenance - preventing and controlling behaviors that disturbs the public peace, including quieting loud parties, settling domestic disputes and intervening in conflicts that arise between citizens. Third as service -provision of a wide range of services to the community, often as a consequence of the 24-hour availability of the police, including assisting in the search for missing persons and acting as an information/referral agency.

Despite the widely held perception both by the police and the public that police performs more work crime control, it’s not true.

Attention is vital to see how the police perform? And in which and what conditions they toil? Are they happy and satisfied? To rectify the anomalies Prevention strategy like Personality development, psychologist and welfare head in every city cell should be assigned. Monthly guidance and exposure should be compulsory to the police man in the service. Police stations should be equipped with operational amenities and electronic connectivity in the office besides good shelter and medication facilities.

This will not only gear them for future challenges but with their family and work pressures as well. Accountability should flow from the highest level to the police constable. The nobility of management has to flow from the top. So that few do not become the Achilles heel of the administration

Holy month of Ramazan

Would like to share an email recieved from my friend about the significance of month of Ramazan

The month of Ramazan is the month in which the Quran was revealed, a book of guidance with proofs of guidance distinguishing right from wrong (AL-QURAN)

Holy prophet Hazrat Muhammad (P.B.U.H) told about the grace and glory of the holy month of Ramazan in a long Hadith. Here is the substance of that Hadith.

“This is the month of God it is a month of blessings and forgiveness it is the favorite month of God its days are the best days its nights are the best nights and its hours are the best hours. This is the month in which your deeds are accepted and your prayers (Dua’a) are fulfilled so, request Allah with pure intention and heart for the removal of your sins and to help you for fasting and recitation of Quran. Give charity to poor, respect your elders, show kindness to children, grant to your relatives and save your tongue , eyes and ears from wrong (Haraam)”

This is the month in which all scriptures (Sohaf) were revealed: Sahifa-e-Abraham on 1st of Ramazan, Taurah On 2nd, Gospel on 12th, the Psalms on 18th while. The Holy Quran was revealed on 23rd of this month. The death anniversary of MOHSENA-E-ISLAM Hazrat Khadeeja-tul-Kubra (A.S) on 10th Ramazan is being observed by TNFJ as Youm-e-Huzn (mourning day), 15th of this holy month is birthday of Hazrat Imam Hasan (A.S), the grandson of Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (P.B.U.H) about whom Hazrat Muhammad said “Hasan (A.S) and Hussain (A.S) are the masters of youngs in paradise”, this day is announced by TNFJ to be observed as YOUM-E-AMEN (Peace day) while 19th, 20th and 21st, these days as Ayyaam-e-Aza (mourning days) in connection with Martyrdom of Imam-ul-Muttaqeen Hazrat Ali Ibn-e-Abi-Talib (A.S). Laila-Tul-Qadr (the night of glory) on 23rd Ramazan which is made better than a thousand months is being observed by TNFJ as Youm-e-Dua’a (Prayer day) and Jumma-tul-Wida as Youm-ul-Quds (Alquds day) to express solidarity with oppressed.

Dua’a (prayer) to be recited after five time prayers (wajib Nmaz) in the Holy month of Ramazan:

O the Exalted, O the Immense one, O the Forgiving O the Merciful you are the great Lord, nothing can be compared with Him He observes all and hears all and this is the month you have bestowed it greatness, dignity, honour and supremacy over all Other months. You have decreed fasting for me and the month of Ramazan is the month in which you have revealed Holy Quran which is guidance for people and proofs of guidance distinguishing right from wrong. You have caused in it the night of glory (Laila –tul-Qadr) and made it better than a thousand months. O who is kind and upon Whom nobody has placed obligation, show kindness to me by liberating me from hell like those to whom you have showed kindness and place me in paradise (Jannah) with your blessing, O the most compassionate.

Special Dua’a (prayers) in the days of Ramazan Al Mubarik: Hazrat Ibne-Abbas (R.A) says that Holy Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) has described “the daily Dua’a” with many of its virtues. Here we mention the original Dua’a.
