Contribution by SWADESHI SCIENCE MOVEMENT for uttrakhand tragedy


Dear Members/ Associates

I am happy to inform you that SSM’D team led by Dr. D P Bhatt, Dr. J C Sharma & Prof. D P Tripathi have recently returned from their tour to Uttarakhand, precisely in the Guptakashi (Rudraprayag Dist.) after accomplishing the long pending GODLY work of our token contribution to the affected 2 families of Lamgaundi village towards  providing  relief and support  to the survivors of the massive destruction of the Uttarakhand National Tragedy 2013 ( see the attached report in Shilpkar Times).  Actually on the auspicious occasion of Bharatiya New Year Day & Navratra festival on 21st March 2015, they gave away the cheques to Mrs. Beena Semwal and Mrs. Beena Devi Sharma on behalf of the SSM’D at Guptakashi on Saturday.
It was an another great coincidence that an another pious social function was held in the same Rudraprayag Dist. during the similar period by one of our like minded Nationalistic organizations i.e. Patanjali Yogpeeth which was attended by Km. Uma Bharati, Hon’ble Union Minister for Ganga Rejuvenation and Water Resources who had very clearly noticed the “coincidence” of the said disaster with “Dhari Devi”  that has been considered from millenniums the protector Goddess of Uttarakhand from floods and devastation. Her ancient temple is located between the towns of Shrinagar and Rudraprayag (both towns are now completely destroyed). Her temple has been at the center of a dispute between the local public and the government, because her temple will get submerged if the construction of a proposed dam goes ahead. It is interesting to notice that some Government officials removed her deity at 7.30 on Sunday (16 June 2013) so that the construction work of the dam can go ahead, while the great deluge in Kedarnath struck exactly 45 minutes later. Now her deity is missing. There are many stories of miracles related to her.

The most popular one is her love for the open sky. Every time someone tried to construct a roof over her deity, a column or something would collapse.Therefore, She is the only deity in India that is always kept under open sky. This might have led to the widespread belief that she protects Uttarakhand from the fury of the skies. The entire world now knows what happened after her deity was removed from the spot of her choice (there are mythological stories behind this fact too). One thing is for sure, the month of June is not the time for floods in this region. The month of June was always considered the safest and best period to travel in the Himalayas. Actually, even the water level of the Ganga river never used to be considerably high in this month. Something inexplicable certainly went wrong. These expressions go well in the lines of our working objectives of amalgamation of spiritual science with traditional & modern Sciences for the sustainable development
Finally, we would like to display the names of our contributors in the SSM’D website shortly and before we do it, I would like to request to those (who haven’t yet given their contributions) to send the amount immediately before the current financial year either by cheque in favour of SWADESHI SCIENCE MOVEMENT OF INDIA, DELHI or by electronic banking transaction in the account of the forum before the current financial year.

Shri Roshan Agarwal has kindly committed to contribute Rs. 5000/-. This is for your kind information.

We also appreciate the help rendered by Sh. Narender Panthri, a social activist in our venture.

Best regards,

Yours sincerely,
Manju  Arora
Treasurer, SSM’D
