“Democracy is pretentious, unless we emancipate from the political system, it will disparage the concept of democracy”.“Politics and Democracy are two different ideologies. They are inseparably mixed; a suitable mechanism or a solvent is needed to elute this mixture for the good of this Country. Perhaps this The New Constitution of India 2018, may be a chromatography to eluting the mixture.” The Author says: ‘he has not done anything that infringes the fundamental rights of anyone, No derogation of fundamental rights, No inconsistency affecting the scope of Article 13(1) or Article 13(2) of the Constitution of India. Even assuming that some of them are, it is for the Government and the Courts to apply the Doctrine of Eclipse or on the Doctrine of Severability. Mechanical interpretation on this ‘New Constitution of India 2018’ might be atrophied or fossilised, but the organic might not !’. It is up to the Government to study, to find a way to implement without affecting the earlier judgements of High Court and Supreme Court on the Constitutional issues. Two main issues are involved:- 1) Whether the substance contained in this ‘The New Constitution of India 2018’ is derogative of fundamental rights within the meaning of Article 13(1) or under Article 13 (2)? 2) Whether the Parliament is having power to exercise its constitutional authority by way of addition, variation or repeal any provision as contemplated under Article 368 of the Constitution? ‘The New Constitution of India 2018’ helps a lame dog over the stile, to emancipate or unshackling the political system which disparaged the democracy in this country.

The use of plants as source of medicinal agents lies deep in the roots of antiquity. No one will ever know what led primitive man emerging from his ancestral, origin, to select certain plant material for the treatment of various ailments and diseases though it may be assumed that during the long transition from instinctive behaviour to more rational action, there was a conscious realization that certain roots, leaves, bark, fruits and even plant exudations had some beneficial action. This knowledge and the characteristics of the plant material, or even the entire plant itself, would be remembered for future occasions and the information passed on to others by word of mouth. Later, as different civilizations developed, man was able to communicate his knowledge and ideas, first by carving into stones or clay and later by writing on parchment or paper with the result that his knowledge became known to the coming generations. Reverence may be made to the clay writings from the library of the Assyrian king, to the Ebers Papyrus and to the writings of Dioscorides to indicate sources of our knowledge today about the crude drugs by Arabians, Babylonians, Chinese, Egyptians, Greeks, Indians, Persians, Romans and Sumarians thousands of years ago. The oldest treatises dealing with Ayurveda are Susruta samhita and Charaka samhita both compiled between 500-300 B.C. The development of the Ayurvedic system of medicine was based on scientific approach and methodology. Many of the drugs used in the traditional systems have stood the test of time. Most of the MAPs are used in the Indian Systems of Medicines and pharmaceutical and oil industries. About 118 species of MAPs of IHR yield essential oils. The Indigenous knowledge about medicinal plants and therapies was composed verbally and passed orally from generation to generation. Much later, some of this information was systematized in treatise forms like Atharveda, Yajurveda, Charak Samhita, Sushrut Samhita, etc. These systematized systems of knowledge about medicinal plants and therapies are included under Ayurveda – the Indian Traditional Medicine System. We are trying to compare the traditional Himalayan materia medica with that used by Ayurved. With the increasing demand of MAPs in the Indian Systems of Medicines, and pharmaceutical and oil industries, the wild populations of the MAPs are facing high pressures. Keeping above in view, and considering importance of number of herbal pharmaceutical industry using plants of high value for production of the eco -Friendly formation. Among the widely used plants cultivation techniques (Agro- technology) and its uses detail describes for farmers and Enterprisers, Academician and Researchers.
Money and muscle power are threatening Indian democracy. It may become kleptocracy if the people do not understand the value of their freedom, if they can’t see through the chicanery of the politicians.
People of India should not be taken for a ride by cunning and corrupt elected leaders. If we fail to the elect right persons as our representatives and entrust the task of governance with them we have failed our duty as a member of a republic. In a country like India, politicians have a number of cunning schemes to keep the people divided; they use religion, caste, and language to create division among the people.
For corrupt politicians, money is not a problem.They are able to grab land, indulge in extortion and run any illegal business with the help of dishonest officials and criminals.Thus they make a mockery of democratic institutions, including elections. In this book, an attempt has been made to expose those political characters who have no quality and vision to become our leaders. Being informed citizens we must identify them and discard them through electoral power.

Life, like river has to flow irrespective of the context towards the final destination: Ocean or Infinity. No rule can stop the natural rhythm of river and life. Truth is always neutral like depth of the river. If we travel deep in the river: vibration of real without superficiality or glorification is observed. The name of the book: ‘Bottom of a Holy River’ genuinely represents the essence of the poems: to differentiate real and false as Sri Ramakrishna Paramahansa said: “The world is indeed mixture of truth and make-believe. Discard the make-believe and take the truth.”
“God plants those seeds, through people on earth… you’re one… I’m one… to bring some bliss… Some escapism… some joy… some magic…!” “Believe in yourself” – Esh

Why should we learn from someone else’s experience?
Let me start with a question.
What will happen if someone falls from the top of a four-story building? One would break his/her leg? Broken bone? Maybe death?Many other responses will also come. But I think the majority will agree that there would be certainly an injury if not death. Correct? Now, if I throw one more question to that majority, how many of them have actually fallen and experienced it themselves? Then I believe more than 95% answers would be on the negative side…But all of them would have known the outcome. How?That’s because, he/she has seen someone, whom it has happened in the past. This is nothing but he/she has learned from someone else’s experience. So moral of the story is, that we do learn from else’s experience, but sometimes we do not realize it.
Likewise in the corporate world, there are many things which we can learn from our seniors, mentors, juniors, colleagues, sales guy, operation guy, peon or anyone for that matter. They have also experienced something in their life, be it professional or personal. The position of the person is not important, learning can come from anyone, be it a human or animal.

Who will stop the brewing conflict, waiting for the smallest of sparks to set the world ablaze? King Bhagirath stared out of his palace balcony at the parched expanse of the land, stretching far into the horizon, contemplating choices that would save the doomed plains. Bhagirath the man must leave the security of his kingdom to tackle a crisis Bhagirath the King cannot.

His travels takes him to the land of flesh-eaters, of the proud people of the mountains and beyond into lands unknown.
