Finally, pension for ex-servicemans widow after 18 years

Hyderabad: Lavanya Reddy, widow of Gunner Ramana Reddy, finally received her family pension notwithstanding an arduous wait of 18 years. Ramana Reddy, who served in the Artillery Regiment, was discharged from the Army in 1991 and passed away in 2005. Due to health issues and familial challenges, Lavanya was unable to complete the formalities required to claim her family pension. Complications arose because of documentation issues and she had inadvertently overdrawn her late husbands pension. Moreover, her account was with a different bank. The credit for her success goes to Col P Ramesh Kumar, director of the Sainik Welfare Department, Telangana, who persistently tried to help her out of the problem. The turning point came in 2017 when Lavanya brought her plight to the attention of Col Ramesh Kumar. The colonel liaised with both banks involved, procured the necessary documents, and submitted an undertaking to recover the excess amount drawn. He coordinated with the record office and the Principal Controller of Defence Accounts (PCDA) in Prayagraj to sanction the pension, completing a myriad of formalities given the delay in the case. In October 2021, after four years of relentless efforts, the family pension was sanctioned. However, the journey did not end there - Lavanya mistakenly closed her bank account, prompting Col. Ramesh Kumar to advise her to open a new account in the same bank. He resumed the complex process with the Artillery Record Office and the PCDA authorities for the change in the bank account. Despite prolonged correspondence and sustained efforts spanning over two years, an amendment to the pension payment order was issued in June, 2023. Yet again, a new challenge emerged when a change of responsibility at the Central Pension Processing Centre of the bank led to her documents being misplaced. Col Ramesh Kumar engaged in a renewed battle with the authorities. His unwavering persistence bore fruit in June 2024 when Lavanya received her pension along with arrears for the past 18 years.

Widow of Ex-Servicemen Gets Pension After 18 Years

Hyderabad: Sustained efforts taken by the Department of Sainik Welfare helped a widow of an ex-serviceman get pension after 18 years. Telangana Sainik Welfare Director Colonel Ramesh Kumar said Gunner Ramana Reddy belonging to the artillery regiment was discharged from the army in 1991 and expired in 2005. His wife Lavanya could not complete the formalities for family pension due to ill health and family issues. Her request for a family pension was kept on hold since she erroneously overdrawn the pension of her husband, documentation issues and her bank account was in a different bank. In 2017, she brought the issue to the notice of Ramesh Kumar, who approached both the banks and obtained necessary documents by submitting an undertaking to recover the excess amount drawn. He took up the issue with the record office and Principal Controller of Defence Accounts (PCDA), Prayagraj for sanctioning pension duly completing a number of formalities since it was a 12-year-old-case. The family pension was sanctioned in October 2021 after sustained efforts for over four years. As Lavanya closed her bank account by mistake, Ramesh Kumar advised her to open another account in the same bank and once again took up the case with artillery record office and the PCDA authorities for change of bank account. After prolonged correspondence and sustained efforts for nearly two years, the amendment to pension payment order with amended bank account was issued in June 2023. However, there was a change of responsibility of central pension processing centres of the bank due to which her documents got misplaced and Ramesh Kumar once again got into a long battle with authorities concerned. As a result, pension along with arrears for the last 19 years was paid to Lavanya in June 2024.

Uttar Pradesh Celebrates Ganga Dussehra with Devotion and Festivities

Uttar Pradesh Celebrates Ganga Dussehra with Devotion and Festivities Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath extended heartfelt wishes to the state's residents on Sunday, marking the occasion of Ganga Dussehra. 'Heartiest congratulations and best wishes to the people of the state and all devotees on the occasion of 'Ganga Dussehra', the descent day of the national river, Mother Ganga, which grants salvation and life. I pray that by the grace of Mother Ganga, may everyone's life be filled with happiness, peace, prosperity, and good health. Jai Ma Ganga,' Adityanath posted on X in Hindi. Elaborating on the festival, Ashutosh Varshney, head of the Prayagraj-based Ram Naam Bank, explained that Ganga Dussehra, also known as 'Gangavataran,' celebrates the descent of the river Ganga from heaven to Earth. 'Ganga Dussehra takes place on 'dashami' (10th day) of the 'Shukla Paksha' of the Hindu month of 'Jyeshtha'. The festival lasts for 10 days, including the nine days preceding this holy day,' Varshney said. The festival is mainly observed in Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Bihar, and West Bengal, where the river flows. Key celebration spots include Haridwar, Varanasi, and Prayagraj, where devotees gather at the river banks to perform 'aartis'.

Congress, SP to fight bypolls in alliance

LUCKNOW: After the conclusion of the Lok Sabha election, Uttar Pradesh is preparing for another electoral battle with nine MLAs from the state reaching Parliament, necessitating bypoll in their respective assembly segments, setting the stage for another round of a bipolar NDA vs INDIA bloc contest in the state. Buoyed by their performance in the recent polls, the Congress and the Samajwadi Party (SP) have hinted at continuing their alliance in the upcoming bypolls to nine assembly seats, of which four each have been vacated by the BJP and SP MLAs and one by the RLD MLA. Though none of the two opposition partners have come out clearly on the seat-sharing as the Congress has no stakes in the bypoll, UPCC chief Ajai Rai confirmed that the tie-up would continue and that there could be seat-sharing discussions as well. Notably, SP chief Akhilesh Yadav has quit Karhal assembly seat to retain the Kannauj Lok Sabha seat. The other seats that have fallen vacant as the sitting MLAs have been elected to Lok Sabha include Anoop Valmiki from Khair (Aligarh), Praveen Patel from Phulpur (Prayagraj), Atul Garg from Ghaziabad (Ghaziabad), Dr Vinod Bind from Majhawan (Mirzapur) of BJP. Similarly, besides Akhilesh Yadav from Karnal, other SP MLAs include Ziaur Rehman Barq from Kundarki (Moradabad), Lalji Verma from Katehari (Ambedkar Nagar), and Awadhesh Prasad from Milkipur (Faizabad). Meanwhile, Chandan Chauhan of RLD from Meerapur (Muzaffarnagar) assembly seat has also vacated it as he has won from Bijnor Lok Sabha seat. While the Congress had not won any of these nine seats in 2022 UP assembly polls, it had contested Ghaziabad and Khair seats unsuccessfully under the SP-Cong pre-poll pact in 2017 assembly polls. In 2024 LS polls also, the SP gave Ghaziabad Lok Sabha seat to the Congress but it lost. As per a Congress source, the party may seek at least Khair and Ghaziabad seats from SP owing to its harmonious equation with the ally SP. On the other hand, SP leadership also confirmed that the allies may have seat sharing discussions for the bypolls. At present SP has 107 MLAs in theAssembly and the ruling BJP has 252.

Raunaqs river run

Last October, popular Delhi-based YouTuber Raunaq Sahni, troubled by a storm of personal problems, left his home for a four-month-long soul-searching journey. The plan was to travel through India along the 2,525-km stretch of the Ganges, which starts from the majestic Gangotri glacier in the Himalayas to end in Gangasagar, West Bengal, before it joins the sea. The expedition proved to be the walk of my life for the 26-year-old as he documented both melodies and tragedies from the deep reverence for the Ganges in the mountains, to its fading glory in industrialised cities, from it breathing life into the places it touches to people wanting to breathe their last on its banks in holy cities such as Haridwar and Varanasi. The result of this expedition is a 270-page photo-book called Melodies of India that is divided into 11 chapters, each one unveiling the paradoxes and truths of human existence found along the rivers path. Just like different notes make up a melody, for Sahni, its Indias cultural differences and diversity that makes it a unique country. The photographs will serve as visual testimonies, encapsulating the diversity, traditions and modernisation of India, says Sahni, who travelled to cities and towns such as Rishikesh, Haridwar, Devprayag, Prayagraj, Kanpur, Bithoor, among others. View from the mountains on the way from Gangotri to Harshil, Uttarakhand. Elephants in the moonlight The Ganges has been calling Sahni since he was 18, when he first went on a trip to Rishikesh in Uttarakhand. However, it was only a year later that he connected with the river at a deeper level. I was filming a man, Sachin, who was walking along the river from Varanasi to Gaumukh. I met him in Rishikesh and took a two-day walk with him to reach Haridwar, crossing through Rajaji National Park, which is known for tigers, panthers and elephants. (L-R) Raunaq at the home of a sage As I was walking at midnight through the dense forest, I saw a herd of six wild elephants in the moonlight going across the murmuring Ganges. We also felt the fear of chancing upon tigers. When I reached Haridwar, I craved that feeling of uncertainty again and wanted to spend more time with the Ganges, says the aspiring filmmaker, who reached two million YouTube subscribers, a million more, after he started posting some videos from his Melodies of India odyssey. The journeys melodies Sahnis journey started at Gaumukh, at 13,200 feet, which is the snout of the Gangotri glacier. However, being used to the urban landscape of Delhi, the solemnity of the lofty mountains and imposing glaciers intimidated the city boy so he went up there with a yoga group. When I was sitting in front of the Gangotri glacier, I realised something troubling me that I wanted to let out. I started walking down from the mountain and was murmuring to myself about my problems. Gradually, I started speaking loudly and eventually started shouting at the Ganges. I felt a burden lift off my chest, he says; he writes about the incident in the first chapter of the book. On his way forward, Sahni met thugs, gangsters, villagers, sages and many unique personalities. A chance encounter with the sand mafia of Prayagraj both terrified and touched him. I was on the banks of the Ganges in the sandy terrain, and I was told not to bring out my camera to shoot because the sand mafia were there. The scene looked straight out of the movie Pirates of the Caribbean there were more than 100 boats and over 300 boatmen who stopped and looked at me, the moment they saw my tripod. I told them we are on a padayatra to Gaumukh. The moment you say padayatra, people start to respect your journey because they revere the river and its soil. They even packed samosas, jalebi and water for us, he says of the unexpected acts of kindness from gangsters; priests, too, invited him to their humble homes and served him lunch. At Bithoor, UP, on the banks of the polluted Ganges The saviours in tragedies As the Ganges descends from the mountains to the plains, Sahni documents the many contradictions that lie in the heart of India, that mirror the realities of the diverse terrain the river traverses. Upon reaching the small town of Bithoor in the Kanpur district, he was shocked to see the river lose its glory to pollution. Bithoor is covered in dust and dirt. Here, I met boatman Laal Muhammad Badshah, who after reading Namaaz in a masjid, comes barefoot to clean the Ganges by picking up trash near its banks. He told me that he had prayed to the Ganges that if his sisters got married to men from good families, he would walk barefoot all his life. The river heard his wishes, he says, sharing one of the slivers of hope in his book. He writes similarly of Gangasagar in chapter nine, Chaos, Gangasagar. He writes that people here breed like insects. He tells TMS: I saw poor management at government shelter homes, the ghats were overcrowded, with people pushing each other, boats were overloaded leading to frequent deaths due to negligence, and people slept on roads. I saw a woman worshiping the Ganges while also letting her daughter defecate near the river. Sahnis evocative photographs vividly describe the fight for resources leading to an undignified way of living. Sahni feels his experience along the river has changed him from being a borderline peoples pleaser to a more carefree individual who likes to go with the flow, just like the Ganges. He ends our conversation reading a few sentences from his book: I carry Ganges in my heart, and in my mind. Sitting on the banks of Ganges, as I write this, I take a deep breath. Perhaps for me, maybe, this was all what this journey was about just a deep, deep breath.
