The Diva- one and only Sitara Devi ji….nritya samragyi; queen of kathak


In every frame here one can find the bright spirit that comes alive the moment you see Sitara Devi ji
Not only for women’s day but for my respect and remembrance i thought to “google” (as this word has become synonym for search) some of the images of our great star. Thus from those thousands pics i selected and copied few pictures available on net and pasted here.sitara3

I wish i can write a small booklet on her. (i will try on net) each frame tells a story thus that story i will imagine and try to write or express in my way. but for now, the women’s day she is the true symbol to pay respect towards her.

I had seen her programs in broadcast from Lucknow Doordarshan Kendra, all black and white during 1980s. I wish all are available in doordarshan archives?. Similar programs of GopiKrishna were also telecasted.

Although SitaraDevi ji hailed from Kathak family and a Brahmin family where it was a social stigma on dancing by girls of such families, But due to encouragement from He Father and guru Pt Sukhdev Maharaj she got opportunity to learn Kathak Dance from her elder sisters Tara ji, who was mother of Nritya Samrat GopiKrishna ji. Another elder sister was Alakhnanda ji who was also a famous kathak performer of her time. I think she died nearly in 1984 ??? i dont remember exact year. But when I went to BHU to appear in an examination there i has read an news that Alakhnanda ji was seriously ill and ailing in a hospital. Since i went to appear in examination and i could imagine how my parents and relatives could have reacted had i requested them to take me to that hospital just to see Alakhnanda ji?? that is situation in our society of present times, then imagine what hardship these ladies the stars had to face during their childhood in 1920s or 1930s?

This particular image is enough to describe her untiring spirit and ever ready to dance. She was on wheel chair, I mean she was unwell that time and still she performed on stage at a function organised in memory of women empowerment


CHILD ABUSE at home : Child sexual abuse, what can we call it?

While sleeping i felt something unusual, But deep in sleep i could not figure it out. I felt a human body beside me. Thus clinging to that warm body I slept again. Now i know how it is dangerous to fall asleep.

He after applying his liquid kisses on me, tried to take me into his tight embrace. I also put my arms around him. He was so pleased by this that again he gave me his liquid kisses. He uses his tongue to lick my cheeks. Putting his lips on my cheeks, he sucks my cheeks tightly. He then as if assuring me tried to caress all over my head, my body and planted kiss on my forehead.

After that whenever i felt something i would move. He immediately took me into his grip of arms. Presented kisses as if, saying don’t worry, everything is ok. For assurance i had bounty of his liquid kisses on me. He many times would say “good child”.

I had picked up habit of imitating him. Whatever he did i did try to do same. He used to kiss on my forehead, cheeks, neck, eyes. i also tried to cling to him and try to kiss him on his chest and his cheeks. When he moved his body towards me then i kissed him. I also imitated him by placing my arms around him.

he was kissing me all over. His chest was over my mouth suddenly his nipples were touching  my mouth I tried to put lips on them. He liked it. he then moved close towards me and adjusted me so that my mouth be placed on his chest, So that my lips touch his nipples. As soon as his nipples came in contact if my lips I tried to firm up my lips as if I tried to kiss. He liked it. Actually he was trying to adjust himself so that I can do it again on him. He gone mad at that time with lots of groaning moaning sounds. He madly kissed me again and again. He just ate my cheeks as if he will puncture my cheeks. My cheeks were full of his saliva. He rolled his warm tongue all over my cheeks. He sucked cheeks strongly. Whole of my cheeks he pulled just like making vacuum inside his mouth.

When i tried to suck his nipple he laughed. I heard him laugh in that darkness. My ears were full of thumping sounds of my heart and his heart. His chest was so close to my face. He was taller and huge well built guy.

Then he placed his leg on me as if keeping me under his control. After I slept i didn’t know what happened? when he came? when he untied his cloths?. But when he placed his leg on me then the touch of his skin indicated that is without cloths.

When he placed his leg on me, my hand touched his thighs. he lifted his leg and adjusted himself so that my hand touch him where both of his leg meet. He pressed his arms around me tightly, he pushed me down and funny thing was that he presented many kisses.

Again while sleeping in this posture suddenly some movements woke me up. my hand found that he had loosened his loin cloth and he was rubbing himself against my body. there it was, a very hard erect thing. He might have also known that i have woken-up so he again encircled me with his strong arms and pulled towards his chest and tried to assure with soft kisses and started licking me. he guided my hand with his hand and placed it around that pulpy tube like organ. he guided my palm to grip it and make movements. By All that he meant as to tell me what to do??

My palm touched that stiff, erect hard thing. what was it? A hard fleshy thing. He started moaning. suddenly he took me into his tight grip OF ARMS as if i thought he will break my bones. But he did not forget his liquid kisses. I was made to turn halfway, now i was completely in his grip. He started rubbing vigorously his belly against me. I think he knew that i loved his liquid kisses, thus whenever i tried to stop him, softening his grips he kissed on me with his saliva kisses.

As he tightened his arms around me, he thrust his belly on me with more force. After that when i tried to move he would just soften his arms. when i again start sleeping he would again do something.  All few days all this touching thing went on.

That day also he stayed in my house. Strangely i was sleeping, something happened, since by now i had become habitual of this body touching and tight grips. thus thinking that something happening as usual, carelessly i just put my arms also around him and slept.

I felt some pressure, he kissed me. He was partly naked. i felt his bare chest at my back.

when he applied force that time i might have woken up, he then forcefully took me into arms and was thrusting his belly into my back.  He had trapped me in his arms so i could not move freely, he caressed all over my body. he surveyed my back. When he forcefully pressed his belly into my back i was shocked. there he had applied his saliva, at that moment when he thrust his organ into me and When his raw flesh (devil) touched on that spot i was blown into pieces. He thrust his fly. his organ was trying to pierce into me. He was halfway through. At that moment With full force I moved a little and came out of bed and failed his attempts.

That night changed me for forever.

This incident brought some of the previous memories to fore, which i had forgotten.

These happened when i was i think 6 or 7 years old.

one dark night I woke-up due to some unknown sensation in my lower part, I found one of my cousin lying beside me. He was much elder to me. he was doing some movements holding me.  he guided my arm to hold in grip a slippery tube like bulbous structure. Holding my hand he made to do some to and fro movements with speed. After some time some strong smashing jerks felt by my hand. I could not see anything since it was a darkest night, i have ever known.

then he lifted and took me somewhere to another place. When he placed me on that bed i found there was another a naked body.  i felt his skin.  It was a big body and well built. He took me into his arms, gently. Despite of a tough body he was gentle enough to kiss me several times. This was amazing and strange kiss i ever had. i never had such type of kiss ever before.

He adjusted me beside him on his bed. My cousin who brought me on that bed went back. This naked BIG body kept his arms around me as if i am a petite little chicken who has to be treated softly. he made me to cling to his body with his strong big arms. Immediately He made my left palm to hold something. It was much more magnificent than my cousin’s organ, hard, bulbous, smooth silky, wet, and erect with warmth. It also had some jerky motion within it. Only missing thing was that i could not see it. There was complete darkness of night. nothing was visible. He was holding me in arms while offering kisses. Body was wet with sweat. But that thing was much more longer than my palm. While i was guessing what this long thing is? He squeezed me, climbed on me, I felt crushed under his huge body and he was doing all his jumping motion on me, i wanted to run out. he held me strongly under his body. He was strong built… I tried to run out of the cot.   to that he said what happened my child? where are you going?

he was a tenant in my grandmother’s house. That night my grandmother was not at home. she had gone to attend a pooja at neighbour’s house which usually they do in the NAVRATRI days. Devi Jagran.

Then whenever i felt something unusual thing while sleeping i found my cousin doing something at my front. While taking nap in summer afternoons, he used to come on bed and lay beside me. I was staying alone with grandmother during summer holidays. In afternoons time, Everybody would sleep. He wore just a cloth around his waist. so he was completely naked. encircling my body with his hand around me. he would make my hand to take his organ in grip and to do some movement over it.

Was this not child molestation?  where i could have complained? these persons were known to me, trusted persons.

That person who recently did this to me was much Elder to me.

He used to stay in our house whenever he used to go city for his job. He always got chance to stay at our house. By touching and praising he made my body accustomed to his TOUCH. then slowly he had graduated on to sneaking into my bed at Nights. Then he made me feel his kisses, liquid and warm kisses, gradually he introduced me to his bare body, his strong arms, He used to encircle me in his tight grip of arms.

Then after wards he made me touch his bare Chest. And i don’t know how he made me to touch his nipples? all through this i just tried to imitate all his actions. Gradually he used to lay beside me naked. few nights he just cling me to his bare body thus he made me to like his touch of his body. he then untied his loin cloths and made my hand to touch his private parts. slowly after few days he tried to forcefully press his body against my body. Slowly he made my body to start liking his applying force on me….. then found that he started playing with my front and back with his hand. Many times he tried to enter his organ inside me with force but at first i tried to resist and successfully ran out of bed. But gradually he became violent in applying force. But when he found me sleeping and he pushed through his organ at my back and he did apply his saliva so as to make it slippery. I stoped him and ran out to save myself. But hurt was done.

Even after so many years of my life those acts and touch and that piercing act,  all that just dont leave me, they come all over again to me. What I can do?

A Legend Passes Away: #Mrinalini #Mukherjee #expressionist??

I read about her : Smt Mrinalini Mukherji in Magazine Dharmayug almost 30 years back. Few of her extraordinary creations were published. Could not believe my eyes what i saw back then. But when i got the chance to see her creations in the Bharat Bhavan Bhopal, then only i could believe. Seeing is Believing it is said. Yes. There were huge installations all woven like sweaters are done? She was great expressionist and most imaginative?

TateEtc41_Artwork-FINAL.inddTT_feature4van raja NGMAVruksha Nat NGMA The VanRaja was the famous ceration, where she might have thought to highlight the plight of Forest?

State of the Art

Rashmi Rajgopal tries rebuilding the image of  the artist and sculptor and asks readers to add in their pieces as well

How do you create an image of someone you have never met before in your life? Instinct would drive you to read about this person, or speak with people who knew her. But if you’re looking for something more impactful, simply attend a memorial service being held for that person.

On Friday, February 6, visitors flooded the National Gallery of Modern Art in New Delhi in remembrance of acclaimed artist and sculptor Mrinalini Mukherjee. The NGMA, currently holding a retrospective titled “Transfigurations: The Sculpture of Mrinalini Mukherjee”, held a memorial service for the artist who, aged 65, had succumbed to a prolonged lung problem last Monday. Among those who spoke fondly of her were Professor Rajeev Lochan, director of the NGMA; Peter Nagy, curator of the ongoing retrospective; critic Geeta…

इंजीनियर साहब के जूते Engineer’s shoe


इंजीनियर साहब के जूते हां यही है इंजीनियर के जूते  20170728_133438

सुबह जब हम ऑफिस जाने के लिए उतरते हैं तो यह जूते यहीं पर रखे दिखाई देते हैं

कई बार तो इनकी चमक देखकर अपने जूतों की तरफ देखना पड़ता है कि कहीं हमारे जूते सही हैं कि नहीं और अक्सर ऐसा होता है कि हमारे जूतों की चमक इन से 19 होती है

हमारी बिल्डिग मे तीन मंजिल है भूतल उसके बाद प्रथम तल और द्वितीय तल या फिर कहे की तीसरी मंजिल पर हम रहते हैं जब हम उतरते या चढ़ते हैं तो इस ही जीना से सीढ़ी से उतरना पड़ता है

दोपहर को जब दफ्तर से घर खाना खाने आते हैं तो चढ़ने के समय भी इन के दर्शन हो जाते हैं चाहे हम 1:00 बजे आए या डेढ़ बजे पर यह जूते पहले से ही यहीं पर डटे मिलते हैं    जब 2:00 बजे दो ढाई बजे…

बड़े साहब IAS

घर के सामने एक गाड़ी गली में खड़ी हुई थी उसपर लिखा था जिला प्रशासन। कुछ मजदूर दरवाजा खोलकर गाड़ी में से सामान उतारकर दूसरे मंजिल के एक घर में ले जा रहे थे यह उपक्रम एक-दो दिन चला। गाड़ी आती सामान उतरता और चली जाती। फिर कुछ दिन के बाद उस घर में से तरह-तरह की आवाजें आने लगी। क्योंकि वह घर कई दिनों से खाली पड़ा था इसलिए अचानक से तरह-तरह की आवाजों से सबका ध्यान उस तरफ आकर्षित होता था। मेरा भी हुआ।

अचानक देखा खिड़कियों की रंगाई पुताई होने लगी। दरवाजों की रंगाई पुताई हुई। ड्रिल मशीन की आवाजें आई जैसे कि पूरा घर पूरी तरह से मरम्मत किया जा रहा था और तो और तीन चार कमरों वाले घर के हर कमरे में अलग-अलग रंगों से पुताई भी हुई। कुछ दिनों के बाद इस सब शोर से अभ्यस्त होने के बाद अचानक से सन्नाटा छा गया। तीन-चार दिन के बाद उस घर से टेलीविजन चलने और गानों की आवाज आने लगी। कुछ दिन के बाद पता चला इसमें एक बड़े साहब सपरिवार रहने आए हैं।

दूसरे दिन सुबह 2_3 लड़कियां आती सफाई आदि करके चली जाती। दोपहर को एक दो लोग आते चले जाते शाम को 6- 7 बजे भी दो लड़कियों को जाते हुए देखा। सुबह एक ओमनी गाडी आती उसमें से एक व्यक्ति अखबारों की गड्डी ले करके उनके घर में जा कर के दे देता। परंतु सबसे ज्यादा वफादार व्यक्ति तो उनका गाड़ीवान यानि कि ड्राइवर था। जो कि सुबह 7:30 बजे हाजिर हो जाता छोटी लड़की और उसकी मां को स्कूल छोड़ने जाता। दोपहर में भी खड़ा हुआ दिखाई देता। शाम को 7:00 बजे 8:00 बजे तक गाड़ी दिखती। अचानक इस बात पर ध्यान गया कि एक tata sumo टाटा सूमो तो 24 घंटा खड़ी रहती है। तो मतलब साहब जी के पास 24 घंटे गाड़ी या गाड़ीवान सभी रहते। घर में लोगों का आना जाना लगा ही रहता। सुबह दोपहर शाम तो दो-तीन लड़कियां कभी-कभी कुछ लड़के घर में कुछ काम करके चले जाते हैं।

हमको इस घर में रहते हुए लगभग 4 साल से ज्यादा हो गए हैं। इन 4 सालों में पास के इंजीनियर के ऑफिस में अनगिनत बार किसी ना किसी बात को लेकर उनके रजिस्टर में शिकायत दर्ज करानी पड़ती है। कभी कोई नल चूने लगा कभी नल में पानी नहीं आ रहा है कभी पंखे का स्विच खराब हो गया कभी पंखा जल गया कभी स्विच में से आग निकलने लगती। किचन के एग्जॉस्ट फैन में से धुआं उठने लगा तो वे लोग आए और लेकर गए। आज ढाई साल से ज्यादा समय हो गया है आज तक पलट के पंखा नहीं आया। अक्सर बिजली विभाग के उस ऑफिस में बोलकर आते हैं कि भाई एग्जॉस्ट फैन किचन का नहीं आया। कोई ज्यादा सहूलियत भरा जवाब तो मिलता नहीं लेकिन अब शिकायत करना एक प्रक्रिया सी बन गई है या यूं कहें कि हमारे स्वभाव में शामिल हो चुका है। घर के दरवाजों में दीमक लगा हुआ है। नित प्रतिदिन कई कई ग्राम लकड़ी का बुरादा इकट्ठा करना पड़ता है। सफाई करनी पड़ती है। खिड़कियों में जो लोहे के तारों वाली जालियां लगी हैं उनसे जंक गिरने लगी है। छेद बन गए हैं। कई बार बोला। रजिस्टर में शिकायत दर्ज कराई। अब उस दिन का इंतजार कर रहे हैं कि कब इंजीनियर साहब की मेहरबानी हो जाए और हमारे घर में मरम्मत शुरु हो जाए।
जिस दिन से इस घर में आए हैं बारिश में छत के एक हिस्से से लगातार पानी चूता है। अक्सर हम लोग डिब्बा डिब्बे लगाकर के पानी इकट्ठा करके और बहाते रहते हैं। बाहर की बालकनी में तो पानी की धारा सी बहती है उस में कोई सामान ही नहीं रख पाते हैं। तो घर का एक तरफ का हिस्सा बारिश में अन उपयोगी हो जाता है। और बारिश भी लगभग 8 महीना से ज्यादा रहती हैं यहां पर। कई बार कह चुके हैं इंजीनियर से। इंजीनियर एक बार आया देखकर चला गया। एक दो बार तो उसने कहा आप हमारे भी बड़े साहब को एक दरखास्त दे दीजिए। अप्लीकेशन मैंने दो बार दी परंतु हमारे पास उसकी कोई कॉपी नहीं है जिससे कि हम साबित कर सके कि हमने इंजीनियर के बड़े इंजीनियर को दी है।
परंतु इस को क्या कहेंगे जो व्यक्ति अभी 4 दिन पहले घर में आया उसके आने के पहले ही घर की पूरी सफाई हो गई दरवाजे तुरंत बदल गए खिड़कियां बदल गई पुताई हो गई नल सब ठीक हो गए पंखा उनका सब लग गया इसको क्या कहा जाए??
तकदीर भाग्य?? वह व्यक्ति क्या है? कैसा है? जिसके लिए यह इंजीनियरिंग विभाग सदैव तत्पर रहता है और हम अक्सर गिड़गिड़ाया करते हैं। गिरते गिर गिर कर उसके पास जाते है। तब भी इंजीनियर के कान पर जूं नहीं रेंगती। हमारे मन में यह सब देख कर क्या भाव आते हैं यह केवल भगवान ही जानता है।
कुछ दिन हुए ही थे कि अचानक बाहर शोर होने लगा। मारपीट की आवाज आने लगीं। रोने पीटने की आवाजें भी आ रही थीं। शाम को टेलीविजन पर न्यूज़ देखी तब मामला समझ में आया।
दूर प्रदेश से एक स्त्री व उसके रिश्तेदार अचानक इन बड़े साहब के घर पर धावा बोल देते हैं और घर में घर की मालकिन से लड़ाई होती है। मारपीट होने लगती है। वह जो बाहर से स्त्री आई थी वह कह रही थी कि यह दूसरी स्त्री कहां से आ गई है। पहली शादीशुदा तो हम हैं। दूसरी पत्नी रखी है बच्चा भी कर लिया है।
पुलिस आई छानबीन हुई शिकायतों का दौर चला और इन बड़े साहब का पलटवार हुआ। टेलीविजन पर यह दिखा जैसे कि वह स्त्री और उसके रिश्तेदार इस घर में घुसकर मारपीट करने तथा छेड़छाड़ करने के अपराधी घोषित होगए।
फिर धीरे धीरे इस घर में भी हलचल गायब हुई। स्त्री गायब हो गई बच्IASचा गायब हो गया। कुछ दिन तो ऐसा लगा इस घर में कोई रहता ही नहीं है। कोई आता भी होगा तो गुपचुप तरीके से चले जाते पता ही नहीं चलता कि परिवार कहां रहता है। महीना भर के बाद जब मामला ठंडा हुआ तो फिर एक बार घर रोशन हो गया। वैसा ही फिर शुरु हो गया। सवेरे गाड़ी आती, अखबार आता, नौकर आते जाते रहते, जीना की सफाई होती, उनका सबसे ज्यादा वफादार ड्राइवर हमेशा तैनात रहता। 24 घंटा tata sumo दरवाजे पर खडी रहती। अक्सर आते-जाते रात में कहीं जाते दिन में कहीं जाते।
यह है हमारे मोहल्ले का हाल। वह अफसर एक प्रशासनिक सेवा के अधिकारी हैं। उनके सामने हम लोगों की क्या हैसियत है।

#Health Care System vis a vis #Urban #Rural and #Medicine systems #HealthCareSystem

A question always arises in mind whether public health system is better or private? I think such question if arises then it is in itself a proof that how much faith we have in public health system? But more often than not we have no other option but to go to public health system.
This debate is going on for very long. I suppose that this will continue for a long period of time. Question always arises whether government provide better health care facilities or private hospitals. All India estimates (in 2014) of rural areas indicated that private hospitals were preferred. Why? Since more number of cases were hospitalized in private hospitals that in public hospitals. Cases 581 per thousands were hospitalised in private hospital whereas 419 in public hospital. Similarly in urban areas 680 per thousand cases hospitalized in private hospitals and only 320 in public or government hospital.
The difference between type of hospitals in rural areas was about hundred or 200 cases. However in urban areas the difference was almost double that means urban private hospitals were most preferred. I don’t know how to infer that a public has more faith in private hospitals in urban areas?
Difference of double that of public hospital is a striking thereby indicating that there is a huge gap in coverage by public health system?? How to expand coverage by public health system is major challenge. Now at this stage we have to talk about coverage leaving aside the quality of health coverage.
More male patients than female are hospitalized in Private hospital compared to public hospitals? Is there any gender issue involved in this?
Or families prefer private hospitals for male patients in rural areas? The difference is not large though even though little bit difference is there. About 278 female and 303 male per thousands patients were taken into private hospital.
In A & N Islands, about 941 per thousand patients hospitalised in public hospitals in rural areas and only 59 per thousand patients in private hospitals. [50 male and 9 female]
No simple inference can be drawn, as in rural areas might not be having any option as not much private hospitals were available. States like Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, J&K, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Odisha, Sikkim, Tripura and even in Delhi less number of patients were hospitalised in Private hospitals
Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Haryana, JharkhandKarnataka, Kerala, Maharastra, Punjab, Telangana, UP, Pudducherry more patients were hospitalised in Private Hospitals.
AP, Gujarat, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Kerala, Maharastra, Punjab, Telangana, UP, Pudducherry, almost more than double patients hospitalised in private hospitals than that of in Public Hospitals. In Urban areas, AP, Bihar, Chattisgarh, Gujarat, Haryana, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Kerala, Maharastra, Nagaland, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, UP, Uttarakhand large number of patients were hospitalised in private hospitals. In few states the number was three times higher than that of public hospitals.
Allopathy is still the most preferred choice of treatment. In urban areas 94.4% Male and 91% female received treatment in Allopathy medicine. All other Indian system of medicine i.e Homeopathy, Yoga, Naturopathy got only less than 7% of total patient share. All these system collectively named as AYUSH.
If data is to be believed then Nagaland shows 82% male received treatment in other system of medicine? While female received 100% Allopathy? Is it a mistake of data entry?
Over all more number of patients got treatment in other form of medicine was observed in Tripura(18), kerala(15.3), Punjab(14.8), Lakshdweep(11.5). Chattisgarh(11.2), Rajasthan(10.3), Himachal Pradesh and A & N Islands (10.1).
However, if any recent study is done few places will top the chart for usinf AYUSH including A & N Islands. I saw long queues standing in AYUSH hospital waiting for their turn to meet Ayurvedic or Homeopathic doctors. Few like to visit AYUSH, as many costly brand medicine are provided free of cost. I overheard two persons talking each other about this.

Penetration of #Internet into #minds of #youngones- #Teens?

download (8)Penetration of Internet is a topic which everyone likes to debate. Now days parents remain tensed over internet access in their homes. Earlier, 30 years back topic of discussion used to be the time spent of watching Television. Every household and all over the print media it was discussed as to how much time children need to spend on watching TV, since so called social media as we know today was not (12)

On doordarshan few psychologists were called and they told how much time children should spent on TV. Topic of debate remains same when computer revolution happened. Be in office or in home, people had TV, Computer also for entertainment, Then after few years a boom of television happened, flood of TV channels started coming, with ZEE and metro channel on DD and few more. Also thanx to the Ekta Kapoor with BALA ji telefilms pvt ltd, they have started an industry now called as Television industry. Earlier we only knew as film industry. Television was untouchables for film actors. It was undoubtedly first STARTUP in television industry? She singlehandedly churned out so many television soaps? Why they call it soap serials? I don’t know? But with her (read their) creativity we now have huge numbers of female actors, Tulsi, Baa, Sakhsi- Kahani ghar ghar ki, Yeh mohabatein,  but it was ITIHAAS serial which I saw on Doordarshan. It was having a superb TV actor Joan david??

With the revolution in Cable TV it was possible to provide live coverage to maximum number of households, Even it became a issue of politics, In few states parties woes that if brought into power they will distribute televisions sets free of cost.

Now in age of IT this social media and in particular the Internet is playing secretly with the minds of our young ones.

As per a survey of NSSO [NSS KI(71/25.2)] which I had read sometime back tells that highest number of households (with atleast one member of age 14 years and above) having access to the internet facility were found in Lakshadweep with 71.9% households. It was closely followed by Pudducherry with 61.6% households at second highest. Third highest was in A & N Islands with 59.3% households (593 per 1000).

In Kerala survey estimated that about 56.2% households had internet penetration. Here most important is the fact that household member age counted was of age 14 and above. But if internet facility is available in household then can we not imagine the access to the children less than 14 years of age?

Goa had 51.0% households with penetration of internet and accessible to 14 years of age.

In URBAN areas separately it was found in survey that Lakshadweep was on top with highest number (75.9%) of households having access to internet. Second highest was urban households of A & N Islands with 71.1% households having access to internet. Maharashtra was with third highest number of households (64.6%) in country with access to internet facility. Followed by Pudducherry at 63.7%, Kerala at 62.1%, Nagaland with 61.2%, Sikkim with 60.8% and Chandigarh with 60.2% households having access to internet in that order.

About 15 states/UTs were having more that 50% households with internet facility (these households were having at least one member of age 14 years and above)

In RURAL areas Pudducherry with 58.0% households having internet facility was the highest, Followed by rural Lakshadweep with 56.1% households having internet facility as second highest. Third highest number of households having internet facility was in Kerala with 51.3%, followed by Goa with 48.6% and Delhi with 42.9% households.

If all these figures indicates something then see this also given bellow:

Daman Diu had 58.0% males dropout from schools, Lakshadweep had 50.9%, Dadra Nagar Haveli had 46.9%, A & N Islands had 45.8% males dropped out of schooling system. Pudducherry (44.6%), Odisha (42.0%), Karnataka(42.3%) and Goa(43.5%).

However, there is few estimates from survey that tells the number of never attended schools? Daman Diu had 18.0%, Dadra Nagar Haveli had 11.8%, Uttar Pradesh had 11.4 and Bihar had 14.3% males who never attended schooling system.


In A & N Islands (as per 2011 census data)

  • 72.1% households possess mobile phones (81.2% in urban)
  • 68.5% households possessed Television (86.3% urban)
  • 83.6% households had telephone (94.4% urban)
  • 3.5% households had computers with internet (7% urban)

The 2011 Pew Internet survey reported that 95% of U.S. young adults between ages 12 through 17 are online, of whom, 80% have profiles on social media sites, as compared to only 64% of the online population aged 30 and older.

while checking net i found this. I didnt know about it earlier. 

But problem now may be of dangerous proportion? we don’t have data to show as to how many kids age wise are having access to internet in India? in some sites it requires to submit that user is of 18 years or above. But when a kid of 14 years clicking it how do the site knows exact age?. few sites i have seen while creating a profile or signing up it requires some ID proof to be put up for verification?? there also we can have fake IDs?

but i don’t know whether parents can keep eye on their kids use of internet outside home? many students now days attend coaching classes and tuition etc. How we can monitor their behaviour ?? a big challenge? to keep up our family values, morality etc?

we hear on TV the crime cases under POSCO are on rise at a high pace?
