The various causes that led to alternative religions are:-
1. Kshatriya class’ resentment towards the domination of the priestly class (Brahmanas) -
The order of hierarchy in the Varna system was-Brahmanas, Kshatriyas, Vaishyas and Shudras.
The
Kshatriyas who were ranked second strongly objected to the ritualistic
domination of the Brahmanas and the various privileges enjoyed by them.
It should also be noted that both Buddha and Mahavira belonged to the
Kshatriya varna. It is important to mention that the Buddhist Pali texts
at many places reject the Brahmanical claim to superiority and places
itself (Kshatriyas) higher than the Brahmanas.
2. Rise of the new agricultural economy that needed animal husbandry-
In
the sixth century BCE, there was a shift of the centre of economic and
political activity from Haryana and western U.P to eastern U.P and Bihar
where the land was more fertile due to abundant rainfall. It became
easier to utilize the iron reservoir of Bihar and its adjoining areas.
People started using more and more iron tools like ploughshare for
agricultural purposes. The use of iron ploughshare required the use of
bullocks, which meant that the age-old custom in the Vedic age of
killing animals as sacrifices would have to be abandoned for this
agricultural economy to stabilize. Furthermore, the flourishing of
animal husbandry became imminent to raise a potential animal population
to take up the work that was required to uphold the agricultural sector
development. Both Buddhism and Jainism were against any kind of
sacrifices, so the peasant class welcomed it.

Ashokan rule by changing the face of the universe first.
3. The Vaishyas and other mercantile groups favoured Buddhism and Jainism as they yearned for a better social and peaceful life-

The agricultural boom led to the increased production of food which
also helped in the development of trade, craft production and urban
centres. The discovery of thousands of silver and copper Punch-Marked
Coins (PMC) by the numismatists reflects the development of trade in
this era. This period is known as the era of second urbanisation. As
many as sixty towns and cities like Rajagriha, Shravasti, Varanasi,
Vaishali and Champa developed between 600 and 300 BCE. The Vaishyas and
other mercantile groups rose to a better economic position and preferred
to patronise non-Vedic religions like Buddhism and Jainism through
substantial donations. As both Buddhism and Jainism promoted peace and
non-violence, this could put an end to wars between different kingdoms
and consequently promote further trade and commerce, which was
beneficial for this economic class.
4. Acceptance of simple and peace centred principles of Buddhism and Jainism by people-
The
common masses welcomed the new religions as they preached peace and
social equality,simple and ascetic living. People wanted relief from the
growing social problems and yearned to live a peaceful and uncorrupt
life.
The early Buddhist literature is divided into canonical and non-canonical texts:
1.
Canonical texts: are believed to be the actual words of the Buddha.
Canonical texts are books which lay down the basic tenets and principles
of Buddhism such as the Tipitakas.
2.
Non-canonical texts or semi-canonical texts: these are commentaries and
observations on canonical texts, quotes, definitions, historical
information, grammars and other writings in Pali, Tibetian, Chinese and
other East Asian languages. Some important ones are:
a. Mahavastu (written in Sanskrit-Prakrit mixed) - it is about the sacred biography, i.e hagiography of the Buddha.
b. Nidanakatha - first connected life story of Buddha.
c. The Dipavamsa & the Mahavamsa (both in Pali) - both give historical and mythical accounts of
the Buddha’s life, Buddhist Councils, Asoka and the arrival of Buddhism to Sri Lanka.
d. Visuddhimagga (the path to purification written by Buddhaghosa) - deals with the development
from the purity of discipline to enlightenment (Nibbana).
e. Milindapanho (in Pali) - consists of a dialogue between the Indo-Greek king Milinda/Menander
and the monk Nagasena on various philosophical issues.
f. Nettipakarana (The book of guidance) - which gives a connected account of the Buddha’s
teachings.
The Tipitakas (Canonical Texts)
The
earliest compilation of Buddhist teachings which were written on long,
narrow leaves is “The Tipitakas” (in Pali) and “Tripitaka” (in
Sanskrit). All the branches of Buddhism have the Tripitakas (also called
three baskets/collections) as part of their core scriptures, which
comprise three books -
• The Sutta (conventional teaching)
• The Vinaya (disciplinary code)
• The Abhidhamma (moral psychology)
1.
The Sutta Pitaka (Basket of Discourses) - these texts are also known as
Buddha Vacana or the word of the Buddha. It contains Buddha’s discourse
on various doctrinal issues in dialogue form.
2.
The Vinaya Pitaka (Discipline Basket) - this contains rules for monks
and nuns of the monastic order (Sangha). It includes the Patimokka - a
list of transgressions against monastic discipline and atonements for
these. The Vinaya text also includes doctrinal expositions, ritual
texts, biographical stories and some elements of Jatakas or “birth
stories”.
3. The
Abhidhamma Pitaka (Basket of Higher Teachings) - this contains a
thorough study and systematisation of the teachings of the Sutta Pitaka
through summaries, questions and answers, lists, etc.
The Tipitakas are divided into Nikayas (books):
2. Majjhima Nikaya
3. Samyutta Nikaya
4. Anguttara Nikaya
5. Khuddaka Nikaya
1. Further subdivided into 15 books

The Buddha - Biography
Hagiography
The
Gautama Buddha was born to Suddhodana (chief of republican Sakya clan)
as Siddhartha in 563 BCE on Vaishakha Poornima day at Lumbini (Nepal).
He lost his mother (Mahamaya) just a few days after his birth and was
brought up by his stepmother Gautami. There were 32 birthmarks on his
body and Brahmanas predicted that either he would be a world conqueror
or a world renouncer. He lived a life of luxury and comfort in his early
years.
• He was married
to Yashodhara at the early age of 16 and had a son named Rahula. At the
age of 29, he left his palace and decided to become a wanderer. He
along with Channa, his charioteer and his horse, Kanthaka, wandered for
six long years in search of truth (Mahabhinishkramana/Great
Renunciation).
• He
first meditated with Alara Kalama and then Uddaka Ramaputta. They were
considered to be the established teachers of that era but he was not
convinced with their teachings that liberation from sorrow can be
obtained by mental discipline and knowledge only.
•
The Buddha later joined five wandering ascetics - Assaji, Mahanama,
Vappa, Bhaddiya and Kondanna. He practised severe austerities until his
body was almost emaciated and realising that austerities could not lead
to realisation, he left them. He then moved towards the village of
Senani and took a seat under a peepal tree facing east. He then resolved
not to rise until enlightenment was achieved.
•
As Gautama sat in deep meditation - Mara, the Lord of illusions,
recognising that his power was about to be broken, tried to distract
him. The Buddha touched the earth, calling it to bear witness to the
countless lifetimes of virtue that had led him to this place of
enlightenment. The earth shook, on hearing the truth of Gautama’s words.
Mara then unleashed his army of demons. In the epic battle that ensued,
Gautama’s wisdom broke through the illusions and the power of his
compassion transformed the demon’s weapons into flowers. Mara and his
army fled in disarray. Thus, at the age of 35, he ultimately attained
Nirvana/enlightenment at Gaya, Magadha (Bihar) under a peepal tree
(Bodhi tree), on the banks of river Niranjana and came to be known as
the Buddha - the Enlightened One. It is believed that Ashoka’s queen was
envious of the Bodhi tree, and tried to kill it but it grew again. The
tree was cut down many times, but it grew again at the same place and is
still revered by Buddhists.
•
The Buddha delivered his first sermon on deliverance from sufferings to
his five former companions at Sarnath. This event is known as Dhamma
Chakka-Pavattana, which means turning the wheel of dharma. The Buddha
wandered about for over four decades, and established an order of monks
and nuns known as Sangha. He attained Parinirvana at the age of 80 at
Kusinara (of the Mallas). His last words were “All composite things
decay, strive diligently”.
• The five forms that represent Buddha are:
o Lotus and Bull - Birth
o Horse - Renunciationo Bodhi Tree - Mahabodhi
o Dhammachakra Pravartana - First sermon o Footprints - Nirvana
Doctrines of Buddhism
The
core of Buddha’s doctrine is expressed in the Ariya-Sacchani (four
noble truths), Ashtangika-Marga (Eight Fold Path), Middle Path, Social
Code of Conduct, and Attainment of Nibbana/Nirvana.
Buddha
urges that one should not cling to anything (including his teachings).
The teachings are only Upaya (skillful means or expedient tools) and are
not dogma. It is fingers pointing at the moon and one should not
confuse the finger for the moon.
The three pillars of his teachings are:
• Buddha - Founder/Teacher
• Dhamma - Teachings
• Sangha - Order of Buddhist Monks and Nuns (Upasakas)
The four noble truths form the core of the teachings of Buddhism, which are:
1.
Dukha (The truth of suffering) - As per Buddhism, everything is
suffering (Sabbam Dukham). It refers to the potential to experience pain
and not only the actual pain and sorrow experienced by an individual.
2. Samudaya (The truth of the cause of suffering) - Trishna (desire) is the main cause of suffering. Every
suffering has a reason and it is a part and parcel of living.
3. Nirodha (The truth of the end of suffering) - the pain/sorrow can be ended by the attainment of
Nibbana/Nirvana.
4. Ashtangika-Marga (The truth of the path leading to the end of suffering) - the end to the suffering is
contained in the eightfold path.
Eight-Fold Paths
The
Eight-Fold Path is more about unlearning rather than learning, i.e., to
learn in order to unlearn and uncover. The path consists of eight
interconnected activities and is a process that helps one to move beyond
the conditioned responses that obscure one’s nature. The
Ashtangika-Marga consists of the following:
1. Right Vision (Samma-Ditthi) - it is about understanding the nature of reality and the path of transformation.
2. Right Thought or Attitude (Samma-Sankappa) - it signifies having emotional intelligence and acting from love and compassion.
3. Right or Whole Speech (Samma-Vacca) - it signifies truthful, clear, uplifting and unharmful communications.
4.
Right or Integral Action (Samma-Kammanta) - it signifies an ethical
foundation of life, on the principles of non-exploitation of oneself and
others. It consists of five rules, which form the ethical code of
conduct for the members of the monastic order and the laity. These are:
• Do not commit violence.Do not covet the property of others.
• Do not indulge in corrupt practices or sensual behaviour.
• Do not speak a lie.
• Do not use intoxicants.
In addition to these, monks and nuns were strictly instructed to observe the following three additional precepts-
• To avoid eating after mid-day.
• To refrain from any sort of entertainment and use of ornaments to adorn oneself.
• To refrain from using high or luxurious beds, and from handling gold and silver (including money).
5.
Right or Proper Livelihood (Samma-Ajiva) - it lays emphasis on
livelihood based on correct action and on the ethical principles of
non-exploitation. It is believed that this forms the basis of an ideal
society.
6. Right Effort
or Energy (Samma-Vayama) - it signifies consciously directing our life
energy to the transformative path of creative and healing action that
fosters wholeness thus moving towards conscious evolution.
7.
Right Mindfulness or Thorough Awareness ( Samma-Sati) - it means
knowing one’s own self and watching self behaviour. There is a saying by
the Buddha, “If you hold yourself dear, watch yourself well”.
8.
Right Concentration or Meditation (Samma-Samadhi) - samadhi literally
means to be fixed, absorbed in. It means getting one’s whole being
absorbed in various levels or modes of consciousness and awareness.
The
teachings of the Buddha follow the middle path (the one between extreme
indulgence and extreme asceticism). Buddha has emphasised that if a
person follows the eightfold path, then he will reach his destination
(Nirvana) without the involvement of the monks/nuns. In the
above-eightfold path, the word “right” signifies “whole”,” integral”,
“complete”, “perfect”.
The
ultimate aim of the Buddha’s teachings is the attainment of
Nibbana/Nirvana. The Nibbana is a Pali word formed of ‘Ni’ and ‘vanna’,
ni means negative and vanna refers to lust or craving. So, Nirvana means
departure from cravings and lust. It signifies dying out or extinction
of desire, greed, hatred, ignorance, attachment and the sense of ego. In
Nibbana, nothing is eternalised nor is anything annihilated, other than
the suffering. It is a supramundane state and an attainment (Dhamma)
which is within the reach of all, even in this present life. The main
difference between the Buddhist conception of Nibbana and the
non-Buddhist concept is that Nibbana can be attained during life also.
In the non- Buddhist concept, eternal heaven is realised only after
death or union with God. When Nibbana is achieved in this life, it is
called Sopadisesa Nibbana-dhatu. When an Arhat attains parinibbana (used
for the death of enlightened beings such as Buddha), after the
dissolution of his body, it is called Anupadisesa Nibbana-dhatu.
The
philosophy of Buddha accepts impermanence and transmigration but denies
the existence of God and believes that the soul is a myth. Buddhism
teaches the existence of ten realms of being and one can be born as any
one of them. At the top is Buddha followed by Bodhisattva (an
enlightened being destined to be a Buddha but purposely remains on earth
to propagate teachings), Pratyeka Buddha (a Buddha on their own),
Sravaka (disciple of Buddha), heavenly beings (superhumans, angels),
human beings, Asura (fighting spirits), beasts, Preta (hungry ghosts)
and depraved men (hellish beings). These ten realms of existence are
“mutually immanent and mutually inclusive”, each one having in it the
remaining nine realms, e.g., the realm of human beings has all other
nine states - from hell to Buddhahood in it. A man can be selfish or can
rise to the enlightened state of Buddha. In Buddhism, karma is the
result of actions depending on the intentions more than the action
itself. Rebirth is the result of the karma of the previous life. Though
Buddhism lays emphasis on non-violence, it doesn’t forbid masses from
eating meat.
Other Important Aspects of Buddhism
Some other important aspects of Buddhism include:
• The Five Aggregates (Pancha-khanda or Panch skandha).
• The Law of Dependent Origination (Paticca- samuppada).
The Five Aggregates
The
Buddha believed that a human being is a collection of Five Aggregates
and a proper understanding of these is an essential step towards the
attainment of freedom from suffering:
1.
Material Form (Rupa) - It includes the five physical organs (ear, eye,
tongue, nose & body) and the corresponding objects of the sense
organs (sound, sight, taste, smell and tangible objects).
2.
Feeling or Sensation (Vedana) - The aggregate of feelings arising out
of contact with the objects of the senses is of three kinds-pleasant,
unpleasant and indifferent.
3.
Perception (Sanna) - This aggregate is the capacity to recognise &
conceptualize things by associating them with other things.
4.
Mental formation (Santharas) - This aggregate may be described as a
conditioned response to the object of experience. In this sense, it
partakes the meaning of habit as well. However, it not only has a static
value, but dynamic value as well.
5.
Consciousness (Vinnana) - The aggregate of consciousness is an
indispensable element in the prediction of experience. It is essential
to understand that consciousness depends on the other aggregates and
does not exist independently.
All
the Five Aggregates of experience are impermanent and constantly
changing, like our perceptions change over time. Buddha stresses that
the utility of the five aggregates is to make people understand them in
terms of impersonal processes and through this understanding, they can
get rid of the idea of self and can overcome hope and fear. They can
regard happiness and pain, praise and blame and everything with
equanimity, with even-mindedness and thus will then no longer be subject
to the imbalance of alternating between hope and fear.
The Law of Dependent Origination (Paticca- Samuppada)
The
Law of Dependent Origination explains the reason of suffering (Dukkha),
as well as the key to its liberation. The law is associated with twelve
links (Nidanas)-all arranged in a wheel and one leading to the next.
This principle can be given in a short formula of four lines-
When this is, that is This arising, that arises When this is not, that is not
This ceasing, that ceases.
This
law emphasizes an important principle that all phenomena in this
universe are relative, conditioned states and do not arise independently
of supportive conditions.
The twelve links of the Dependent Origination are:
1. Ignorance (Avija)
2. Mental formation (Sankhara)
3. Consciousness (Vinnana)
4. Name & Form (Nama-Rupa)
5. The six senses (Salayatana)
6. Contact (Phassa)
7. Feeling (Vedana)
8. Craving (Tanha)
9. Clinging (Upadana)
10. Becoming (Bhava)
11. Birth (Jati)
12. Aging & death (Jara-marana)
All the links are interrelated and dependent on each other, thus there is no starting point nor end point-a cyclic phenomenon.
Dividing the 12 links into three groups-
1. Defilement (Klesha)- ignorance, craving and clinging. Defilement is the impurities of mind resulting in actions.
2. Action (Karma)- mental formation and becoming.
3. Suffering (Dukkha)- consciousness, name & form, the six senses, feeling, birth, aging and death.
Together,
the defilements and actions explain the origin of suffering and
particular circumstances in which each one of us finds ourselves, or in
which we are born. The Buddha emphasizes that he who sees Dependent
Origination sees the Dharma and he who sees the Dharma sees the Buddha.
If one can see and understand the functioning of dependent origination,
he can then set about breaking this vicious circle of dependent
origination by removing the impurities of the mind - ignorance, craving
and clinging. Once these impurities are eliminated, actions will not be
performed, and habit-energy will not be produced. Once actions cease,
rebirth and suffering will also cease.
Reasons for Spread & Popularity of Buddhism
Buddhism
gained wide acceptance and popularity and spread like a wildfire
throughout India. With the support of emperor Ashoka, it spread its
wings to central Asia, west Asia and Sri Lanka. Various causes for the
rise and spread of Buddhism are:1. Liberal & democratic - Unlike
Brahmanism, it was far more liberal & democratic. It won the hearts
of the lower class as it attacked the varna system. It welcomed people
of all castes and even women were admitted to the Sangha. The people of
Magadha readily accepted Buddhism as they were looked down upon by the
orthodox Brahmanas.
2.
Simple language - The Buddha spread his message in the simple language
of the masses. The Pali language which Buddha used was the spoken
language of the masses. The Vedic religion was understood only with the
help of Sanskrit language which was the monopoly of the Brahmins.
3.
The personality of the Buddha - The personality of the Buddha endeared
him and his religion to the masses. He was kind and ego-less. His calm
composure, sweet words of simple philosophy and his life of renunciation
drew the masses to him. He had ready moral solutions for the problems
of the people.
4. Royal
patronage - Royal patronage of Buddhism also accounted for its rapid
rise. Kings like Prasenjit, Bimbisara, Ashoka, Kanishka patronised
Buddhism and helped its spread throughout India and outside as well.
Ashoka deputed his children to Sri Lanka for the spread of Buddhism.
5.
Inexpensive- Buddhism was inexpensive, without the expensive rituals
that characterised the Vedic religion. It advocated a spiritual path
without any material obligation of satisfying gods and Brahmins through
gifts and rituals.
Buddhism
tried to mitigate the evils resulting from the new material life of the
sixth century BCE. Since the Buddhists had a keen awareness of the
problems (social & economic disparities), they
presented
innovative solutions to these concerns. Buddhism asked people NOT to
accumulate wealth, indulge in cruelty or violence - ideas that were
welcomed by the people.

How To Promote Your Blog In 2022: The Complete Beginner’s Guide



How To Promote Your Blog Faster


How do you promote your blog? Do you share it on social media once and hope for the best?

Sadly, that’s not going to work. Unless you have millions of fans who
live and breathe your every word. But I’m guessing you’ve not reached
celebrity status … yet.

In the meantime, why not try some of these ideas. Most are free, so what have you got to lose?

We’ve arranged them into sections so you can pick one at a time.

Before you start, a word of warning. Don’t try all of these ideas
together. Pick one or two that you feel comfortable with and suit your
niche. Then evaluate your results.

In time, this will allow you to create a documented promotional process you can follow for every post you publish.

The result? More eyeballs on every blog post you publish!

Let’s get started:


Part 1 – Pre-promotion

Part 1 is all about getting your website and content in tip-top condition to give you the best possible chance of success.


1.1 – Site optimization (Technical SEO)

In this section, you’ll learn about the essential elements you need
to have in place to ensure your WordPress site is running smoothly.

  1. Visitors have an enjoyable experience finding their way around your site
  2. Search engines can find and index your site


Hosting

Selecting a reliable web host should not be taken lightly. If you
choose a poor web host (and there are plenty of them around), then
you’ll suffer setbacks and frustrations. And, more importantly, if your
visitors have a miserable experience, then they’ll move on to another
site.

Check out our managed WordPress hosting comparison.


Speed

Nobody likes hanging around for a slow loading website. Plus, Google
favors fast loading sites. Even if you have good hosting, there are
still a few tweaks you can make. For instance, WPX Hosting recommends
using the W3 Cache plugin to make your web pages load faster.

Check out these free speed enhancing plugins for WordPress.


Security

WordPress is the most popular blogging platform,
and with so many sites to target, it’s highly desirable for hackers. If
you don’t put some security measures in place, you will get attacked at
some point. Depending on your hosting service, you might already have
robust security measures in place. However, if you don’t, then there are
a couple of security plugins we recommend.

Check out our recommended security plugins for WordPress.


Indexing and crawling

Don’t be intimidated by the heading. You need to know that for your
blog to be successful it needs to be findable. And the way that happens
is through Google and other search engines being able to crawl and index
your site via a Robots.txt file. You can create your own or, guess what, use a plugin to help you.

Check out our recommended SEO plugins for WordPress.


Without external links the Internet wouldn’t exist – there’d be no
way to get from site to site. Likewise, without internal links, your
visitors wouldn’t be able to get from page to page on your site. So
here’s what you need to do:

  • Internal links – When you publish new content on your blog think
    about existing posts and pages you could link to. And also, think about
    existing posts and pages that could link to your new content.
  • External
    links – Include links to relevant pages on other sites from your
    content. There’s bound to be some high-quality, authoritative pages
    you’ve researched when writing your content, so link to them, and let
    the site owner know, too. (It’s the start of influencer marketing – more on that later.)
  • Broken
    links – Unfortunately, internal and external links don’t last forever –
    URLs change, content gets moved around, and sites disappear. So you
    need to make time to find and fix your broken links.
  • Redirects
    – Sometimes you need to change the URL of your pages or domain.
    WordPress sometimes implements redirects but they’re not always
    reliable. Instead you could use the free Redirection plugin. But, from a performance perspective it is worth adding redirects manually if you’re comfortable doing it.


Analytics tools

Analytics Tools are essential for any blog. They’ll help you
understand how people are interacting with your website. If you’re going
to spend time creating and promoting your content, you’ll want to know
which content is most popular and what promotion method drove visitors
to your site. Most bloggers use Google Analytics to track their website
data, but there are other tools available.

Check out these analytics tools.


1.2 – Content planning and research

In section two, you’ll learn about researching and planning the content for your audience.


Choose your niche

Before you start producing content for your blog, you need to have a clear idea of your niche,
or topic, and the four or five categories that support it. If you
choose a topic that nobody is interested in, then you’re going to have a
tough time promoting your content.

It’s worth checking Google Trends to see how interest in a topic is increasing or decreasing over time. Here’s an example for the term “content marketing”:


Google Trends Content Marketing


Research keywords and topics

When you’ve finalized your niche, you can start planning what content
to produce. Keyword research involves finding the keywords (or search
queries) that represent your blog.

Check out our keyword research guide

Once you’ve researched your keywords, you can sort them into topics aligned with your categories above.


Research your audience

Before you start producing content, you need to consider your
audience. Take some time to build a picture (sometimes called an avatar)
of who you are writing for and then tailor your content accordingly.


Decide on your brand voice

When you have an idea of your target audience, then think about your
tone of voice. How are you going to present your content to your
readers? Will you be serious or humorous? Casual or formal? Irreverent
or respectful? Find your brand voice with Portent’s Tone Of Voice Generator:


Portent Brand Voice


Consider content type

Now you have your niche and keyword topics arranged, you should consider what type of content you’re going to produce.

Research by BuzzSumo – published on Noah Kagan’s OkDork blog â€“ showed that infographics and list posts received more shares than other types of content:


Content Type

We’ve experienced this with our posts at Blogging Wizard. And for infographics, they perform especially well on Pinterest.

And Top 10 Lists were popular in print publications long before the web existed.

In short, people are fascinated with lists and data-driven graphics.


1.3 – Content optimization (OnPage SEO)

In this section, you’ll discover how to optimize your content on every page before you hit publish.


Add meta tags to your title, URL, and description

If you use the Yoast SEO plugin for WordPress, you’ll get prompted to complete these three fields:

  1. Title – Try to put your keyword at the beginning of your title, if possible.
  2. URL – Use short URLs that include your keyword
  3. Description – Write curiosity-inducing meta descriptions that suck people in


Yoast SEO Fields

The snippet preview shows how it’ll look in the actual SERPs:


SERPs


Include keywords on your page

Try and include your target keywords in some of the following places:

  • URL
  • Page Title
  • Main Heading (H1)
  • First paragraph of the page
  • Page subheadings (H2/H3 etc.)

It’s not necessary to have them in every location, (and you certainly
shouldn’t force your keyword into those places just for the sake of
it), but it will help to optimize your page.


Optimize your images

There are three things you need to optimize on your images:

  • Dimensions – Make your images the right size for your blog page.
    For example, on my blog, I make sure the images are 600px wide, so they
    fit in with the theme and design.
  • File size – Make sure you
    compress your image files with a tool like TinyPNG or Kraken before
    uploading to WordPress. These programs can reduce file sizes by as much
    as 65% and help to make your blog load and run faster.
  • Alt text –
    Always add a meaningful description to the Alt Text on your images.
    This helps visually impaired readers understand what the image relates
    to, and it also helps search engines index your images.


Image Optimization


Start building your list

Email marketing, as you’ll discover in Part 2, is one of the best
ways to promote your blog as you have a direct connection with your
fans. But first, you’ll need to build a list of subscribers. And for
that, you’ll need two essential things in place on your blog:

  1. An easy way for people to sign up to your list.
  2. A compelling reason to join your list, often referred to as a ‘lead magnet’.

Check out our ultimate list building guide for more details.


Encourage social sharing

Getting other people to share your content on social media is a bonus
for you. As well as having some awesome content to share, you need to
prompt users to share it. You can maximize your promotion efforts by
placing visually attractive Social Sharing Buttons and Click To Tweet
Widgets on your blog with a social sharing plugin.

  • Social Sharing Buttons – You don’t have to
    include every social network, only those appropriate to your blog. Look
    to your left to see an example of the buttons we use on Blogging Wizard.
  • Click To Tweet Widgets
    – You can highlight a quote or phrase so that it stands out and
    encourages readers to share it. Here’s a live example we added to the
    post using Social Warfare:


There are lots of social sharing plugins for WordPress, so we narrowed the options for you.

Check out our selection of the best social sharing plugins for WordPress.


Content presentation

Finally, we need to cover a few points about your content because
you’ll need to write quality content so that it’s easier to promote:


Headlines

The headline is the first thing a reader sees, on social media or
search results pages, so it has to make an impact. Start with an
attention-grabbing headline and then make sure your content stacks up to
what you promised. Take your time to create the best headline possible.


Content length

Several studies have concluded that longer blog posts get:

(a) More social shares:


Social Shares Word Count

(b) Higher search engine ranking:


SERPs Word Count

However, you need to take into account your niche and the goal of
your content. Longer content may appear to perform better but remember,
word count only matters when you write quality content – 5,000 words of
drivel doesn’t benefit anyone.


Note: Your content should be as long as it needs to be to get your point across, in the most effective way possible.


Content layout

You need to make your content easy to consume. Most readers scan web
pages, so you need to give them markers to stop them in their tracks and
highlight key points using subheadings and bullet points.

Make your content more visual by using relevant images, videos, screenshots, and diagrams. Research from Nielsen says:


Users pay attention to
information-carrying images that show content that’s relevant to the
task at hand. And users ignore purely decorative images that don’t add
real content to the page.



Part 2 – Blog promotion

In Part 2, we’ll take a look at the different ways you can promote
each blog post. This is not meant to be an exhaustive checklist that you
should follow religiously. Rather it’s a list of ideas you can try, and
see which works best for you.


Note: Before you start, it’s a good idea to prepare a
simple text file with information you can reuse on several platforms.
This will speed up the promotion process. The following is an example of
what we use at Blogging Wizard:

  • URL – start with your standard blog post URL.
  • Headline variations – write out 3-5 headline variations for your post.
  • Short
    social messages – write out several short social messages for use on
    Twitter. These can be quotes, questions, or based on headline
    variations.
  • Longer social messages – write out several slightly longer social messages for use on LinkedIn, and Facebook, etc. Popular copywriting formulas work well here.
  • Contact
    information – mentioned a person or brand in the post? Include their
    contact info – Twitter account, email address, etc. You’ll want to let
    them know they’ve been mentioned.
  • UTM tracking URL’s (optional) – use Google’s Campaign URL Builder to create a tracking link for each platform you promote your article on. This will help you track traffic more accurately.
  • Shortlinks (optional) – tracking links can look messy. Using a URL shortener will tidy them up.


2.1 – Email marketing

Despite all the latest marketing fads, email remains the most powerful and cost-effective.

Studies have shown email to offer an ROI of around 4200%.

It’s still the favorite means of communication for many people. Think
about it: every account you sign up for typically requires an email
address.


Email your list

In Part 1 we talked about list building. Now it’s time to use that list.

Emailing your list of subscribers is one of the best ways to start
driving traffic to your latest blog post. But don’t leave it there. Ask
them to comment, like, and share it with their community so that you can
reach a wider circle of people.

And it stands to reason that if someone is already a subscriber,
they’ll be more likely to share your content with their followers.


Use an email signature

Include a link to your latest blog post in your email signature. It’s
a simple and subtle way to promote your content. And you never know
which recipient might click and read. Try WiseStamp for a professional email signature with links to your social profiles and latest blog post:


Wisestamp Signature


Email your contacts

Now and then, email your contacts (friends, family, etc.) and ask
them to share your latest blog post. You never know how far the ripple
effect will spread. Always ask politely and offer to help them in some
way.


Note: If you use this tactic for every blog post, you’ll lose your contacts!


Ask a colleague to email their list

If you have friends and colleagues working in the same or a similar
niche, then you could ask them to email their list. Perhaps you could
agree to do the same for them in return. But again, don’t do this for
every post you publish.


2.2 – Social media marketing

Sharing your content on social media is still an excellent way to get
more visibility, and ultimately increase traffic and shares. But it’s
not just a case of posting once on Facebook and then moving onto
something else. You need to have a social media marketing strategy in place:

  • Focus on the most relevant social networks for your blog.
  • Engage with people on those platforms including influencers and brands.
  • Participate in social groups to grow your social media reach.


Maintain a regular presence on your chosen social networks and post
consistently. Don’t just turn up when you have a new blog post to share.
Social media is a two-way channel, so engage with other people by
liking and sharing their content.

Vary the message in your social media posts to suit each network. For example, tools like Blog2Social and Sendible
allow you to tailor your posts per network by using a long or short
message, adding relevant hashtags or mentions, and selecting a portrait
or landscape image.

Sendible also offers content recycling so you can continue to promote your content on a regular basis, as well as a social inbox so you can manage replies and engage with your audience.


Reciprocal sharing sites

These next social sites all work by reciprocal sharing. You earn
‘credits’ for sharing other people’s content, which then allows you to
post your content and get it shared by others.

  • Triberr
    is a powerful way to promote your blog. Each of your blog posts will be
    imported automatically (via RSS), but you can edit the import if you
    wish. For example, you can add your featured blog post image to make
    your post stand out in the stream. Remember to get engaged with your
    tribemates and share their content.
  • Viral Content Bee lets
    bloggers promote their content on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest.
    When you’ve earned enough credits by sharing other people’s content, you
    can add your post to get it promoted. For best results, connect with
    and share content from your niche.


Social bookmarking sites allow users to post their favorite stories,
images, and videos, and use tags to organize them. Other users can take
these ‘bookmarks’ and add them to their own collection or share them
with even more users. Most of these sites also have a voting system so
members can ‘upvote’ their favorite posts, which rise to the top and
gain more exposure.

  • Reddit was
    never intended to be a directory of links like other bookmarking sites.
    It consists of smaller interest-based communities called subreddits.
    Some subreddits don’t allow you to share links, in which case you’ll
    have to write original content for your community.
  • Flipboard is
    more of a social magazine-style app than a traditional bookmarking
    site. But you can also create your own magazines by selecting “flip it”
    to republish posts and share with your followers.


Niche social bookmarking sites

Sharing your content in niche-specific sites will generate more
relevant shares and traffic because your content has the right audience.

Here are a few examples to choose from:


Social groups, communities, and forums

Online communities give you the opportunity to contribute, build
relationships, and establish your authority. But, like Reddit, it won’t
work if you only drop links. You have to provide more value by getting
involved in discussions.

Look for established groups that are active and have good moderation. And use the platforms that suit your niche:

  • Facebook groups
  • Pinterest groups
  • LinkedIn groups
  • Web forums
  • Quora


Note:
Consider creating your own groups on one of these platforms. This will
help you develop your online presence further. Facebook is usually the
most popular option, but it can take a lot of effort to make your group successful.


2.3 – Content leverage

If you only write a blog post and publish it on your own blog, then
you’re missing out. But by leveraging your content, you can get it in
front of a larger audience.

Here are four ways you can try:


Content curation

Some sites allow you to curate your content into lists and
collections. For example, if you were in the gardening niche, you could
create a topic on ‘Hardy Bi-annuals’ and then save content to it that
includes some of your posts.

Here are a few sites where you can curate your content:


Content aggregators

Content aggregators collect content from other websites and
“aggregate” it into one easy-to-find location. It’s not classed as
copyright theft as long as the aggregation site clearly states and links
to the source, and doesn’t republish the content in full. Plus it’s a
win-win:

  • Visitors have access to all content in one place.
  • Creators get their content in front of a larger audience.

Here are some of the most popular content aggregators:


Content syndication (blog republishing)

According to Search Engine Watch:


Content syndication is the process
of pushing your blog post, article, video or any piece of web-based
content out to other third-parties who will then republish it on their
own sites.

Best practice is to publish on your blog first, wait a few days (minimum) until Google has indexed your post, and then republish on other platforms like Medium and LinkedIn.

Alternatively, you could post a snippet or a taster of your post on the syndication sites with a link to your full article.

Either way, it’s an opportunity to get your content in front of a larger audience.


Warning: Best practice is to add something called a rel=”canonical” tag to the republished piece of content.

A canonical tag is a piece of code (metadata) that includes a link to
the original piece of content. This helps Google to understand which
website originally published a piece of content.

If that’s not possible, it’s recommended to link back to your original content from the re-published version.

But, Google doesn’t always rank the website that originally publishes
a piece of content – even if they know who originally published it.
They typically rank the website they “think” visitors prefer to read on.
Or in some cases, the more authoritative website.

For this reason, you may be best only syndicating content that isn’t
targeting any specific keywords, or a snippet of your content.


Content repurposing

Content repurposing is all about turning your initial blog post into another format like an infographic, a video, a podcast or a Slideshare presentation.

For example, Adam turned his Expert Interview blog post – How To Stand Out Online: 43 Experts Share Their Top Tips â€“ into an Infographic.

What’s more, he published the infographic on another site so he could
reach an even wider audience. The initial blog post had over 5,000
visits and 2,000 social shares, while the infographic has brought in an
additional 35,000+ visitors.

There are a number of  ways to position your infographic. You can use
graphs, flow charts, tables, timelines, and more. And there are plenty
of other content types to explore.

For more, be sure to check out our in-depth content repurposing guide.


2.4 – Relationship marketing

Running a blog is doomed to failure if you try to do everything on
your own. There’s a whole blogosphere out there that you can tap into.
All it takes is for you to build relationships with the right people.
And like any relationship, that means you need to give and take.

Jason Quey, writing about his experience of working with 1000 influencers, summed it up perfectly:


Be a giver, not a taker.

In this section, you’ll learn how to promote your content with the help of other people.


Influencer marketing

Influencer marketing involves connecting with and asking individuals
that influence your target audience to help promote your content rather
than trying to reach that audience on your own.

Here are three ways you can use influencers to promote your content:

  • Mention influencers in your posts (individuals or expert roundups)

There’s no better way of letting an influencer know how much you
value their work than by including a relevant link to them in your blog
post. And as long as it’s high-quality content, they’ll be more than
happy to share it with their audience, which will undoubtedly be more
extensive than yours.

You don’t need to ask them to share it. Just let them know you
appreciate their work and you included a link. For instance, I let Andy
Crestodina know that I’d mentioned him and his book in my post, and he
was more than happy to share it with his followers. (Actually, it was a
republished article on LinkedIn, but it received over 700 views, 155
likes, 32 reshares, and 12 comments.)

  • Interview an influential blogger

Taking it one step further, why not ask an influential blogger for a
quote or two in your new blog post. It’s a great way to add some unique
content to your post that differentiates it from others. If you ask
politely, most bloggers will be happy to oblige. And, again, when it’s
published, they’ll share it with their followers.

  • Invite influential bloggers to contribute to your blog

One of the most overused blog promotion tactics is to write an Expert
Roundup. What started out as a valid idea has been overcooked. Now you
see posts like “143 Experts Tell You How to Boil an Egg.”

Along the way, the emphasis switched to getting as many experts as
possible involved so that the blog post would get shared by more people.

You don’t have to do that. Go for quality rather than quantity and
conduct a group interview with five to seven influencers who can add
real value to your post and share it with their audience.


Blogger outreach

Blogger outreach is similar to influencer marketing. It’s another way of asking for help from influential people in your niche.

The focus is not simply to have an influencer with a large audience plug your product.

Instead, blogger outreach is more focused on forming content partnerships, guest blogging, or backlink acquisition.

Blogger outreach is one of the most effective ways to promote your
content, but there’s a right way and a wrong way to conduct your
outreach.


Guest blogging

Guest Blogging is still one of the most effective ways to promote your blog.

The key to making it work is to write your best content on relevant
blogs in your niche that have a high volume of followers and
subscribers. Include a link in your author bio to a landing page on your
site where visitors can get an exclusive download or find more about
your services.

For example, Lily Ugbaja uses her author bio to direct visitors to her Hire Me page:


Lily Ugbaja Author Bio

You may not see overnight traffic flooding back to your website. But
it’s still a good way of building your authority and becoming recognized
in your niche.

Learn more in our guide to guest blogging strategy.


Blog commenting

When you start commenting on the top blogs in your niche, you’ll get
the attention of other commenters and the blog owner. If your comment is
useful, then other readers will go and check out your blog. And,
ultimately, you might even get an invitation from the blog owner to
write a guest post.

But, more than anything this is about relationship building – some
great connections and friendships can come out of it as a result.

It’s those friendships and connections that will help you promote
your content better in future. Just be sure to avoid dropping links to
your content within comment itself.


2.5 – Paid marketing

So far, we’ve used ‘free’ blog promotion tactics that have only
consumed your time. But there are some paid alternatives to promoting
your content, so let’s take a look at a few options.


Social media advertising

As social media organic (non-paid) reach declines, you may want to consider paid advertising.

Each social media platform has different demographics and advertising formats. For example, there’s:

So you need to consider:

  • the best social network for your campaign; i.e. where your audience hangs out
  • the best advert format; e.g. images, video, text
  • the costs per network and your budget

For more information, check out Sendible’s guide to social media advertising.

Aside from the leading social networks above you may want to consider:

  • Quuu Promote
    allows content creators to submit their content into the Quuu content
    curation system. Once the content is approved, it’s shared by other
    business owners on social media. Promotion costs vary depending on the
    content category.
  • Reddit
    is one of the biggest online communities, with an estimated 17 million
    monthly users. Its advertising costs are cheaper than traditional social
    sites.


Content discovery platforms

Content discovery platforms – sometimes called Native Advertising – like Outbrain and Taboola provide another option to promote your content.

The native ads are designed to look and feel like they belong on the
publisher’s website. They usually appear at the end of an article
presented as: “You May Like”, “Recommended For You” or “Promoted
Stories”.

Here’s how a Blogging Wizard post might look via Outbrain:


Outbrain Example


Search advertising

Search advertising places advertisements in search engine results.
It’s also referred to as PPC (Pay-Per-Click) advertising because you
have to pay a small fee every time somebody clicks on your ad. You’ll
see them at the top of Bing and Google SERPs denoted with an ‘Ad’ icon:


Google Adwords



Part 3 – Measuring your blog promotion

How do you know which blog promotion strategies work? By measuring results.


3.1 – Web analytics

Way back in Part 1 we mentioned installing and using some web
analytics tools. Now’s the time to see what data they have for you.
Whichever web analytics tool you use there’s going to be a lot of data
to work through.

In Google Analytics, you can check the ‘Acquisition’ section and ‘Channels’ to see where your blog visitors have arrived from:


Google Analytics Channel


Note: Traffic ends up in these various channels according to rules defined here. For a better understanding of channels, I recommend reading this article.

Here’s a brief overview of the different channels you are likely to come across in Google Analytics:

  • Organic Search – Visitors who come to your website from search engines; e.g. Google and Bing.
  • Direct
    – Visitors who come to your website without a traceable referral
    source; e.g. after typing your URL into their address bar or using a
    bookmark on their browser.
  • Social – Visitors who come to your website from a social network; e.g. Facebook, Twitter, etc.
  • Referral – Visitors who come to your website from another website by clicking on a link.
  • Other – Visitors from traffic sources where the UTM_Medium parameter is incorrect.
  • Paid Search – Visitors who come to your website from a paid search advert; e.g. Google AdWords
  • Email – Visitors who come to your website after clicking links in your email marketing campaigns.

Bottom line, Google Analytics is only as good as the data going in.
So if you want to track your data diligently, then you need to build your tracking parameters correctly on all the links you can control.


3.2 – Social media monitoring

As well as web analytics tools you can use social media monitoring
tools to check how your blog posts are performing. Google Analytics is
not brilliant at tracking social media. But there are plenty of other
tools available so you can see which platform is best for promoting your
blog content.

Check out this guide on the best social media monitoring tools.


Conclusion

With so many blog promotion tactics listed here, it’s impossible to use them all at once.

Our advice:

Start off with one or two blog promotion strategies and see what works best.

Then try adding another one. And then another. Until you find works for you.

It might be that one tactic works for one blog post and a different
tactic works for another, depending on your content and audience. Try
not to be too hasty when eliminating a strategy as some might take
longer to work than others.

Eventually, you can collate everything that works into a solid content promotion process. You can then use this process to get more traffic to each post you publish.

her partymen to render financial help to poor widows, the elderly and
physically impaired persons of the “sarv saamaj” on the occasion. She
also appealed to her cadres to extend financial assistance to the party
on the day.

president Marasandra Muniyappa said the Pejawar seer was keen on meeting
Ms. Mayawati. However, he said the party was not aware of the exact
reasons behind such a meeting sought by him.


Mr. Muniyappa only said that the success of Ms.
Mayawati’s social engineering experiment in Uttar Pradesh in which the
party joined hands with the upper castes as well as the oppressed
communities had resulted in people from various communities, including
the upper castes, moving towards the BSP in Karnataka.


He said the party State unit was in an upbeat
mood ever since Ms. Mayawati addressed a convention in Bangalore
recently. More than 1,000 persons were joining the party every day from
various communities ever since Ms. Mayawati’s visit, he claimed. During
her Karnataka visit, Ms. Mayawati had assured poor people from upper
castes of providing 10 per cent reservation in private sector if her
party came to power at the Centre.


Mr. Muniyappa said the party would contest all
the 224 Assembly seats in the State on its own without entering into any
alliance with other political parties.


In a statement, the party said the former
Vice-Chancellor of Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences R.
Chandrashekhar would join its fold.


Meanwhile, the BSP State unit has decided to
celebrate Ms. Mayawati’s birthday on January 15 in a novel way by
providing financial aid of Rs. 5,000 each to five destitute women and
poor widows from every Assembly constituency in the State.


Mr. Muniyappa said about 1,300 persons would
receive the financial aid at a programme to be held on that day at the
Ambedkar Bhavan in Bangalore.


He said the funds for such an aid would be raised from the party members instead of collecting donations from industrialists


Contribute financially on my birthday, says Mayawati




BSP chief Mayawati said she has appealed to her
supporters to celebrate her birthday on Monday by ‘contributing
financially’ to the party and for welfare activities.


The UP Chief Minister, who will turn 52 on
January 14, said that she had asked ‘party workers and well-wishers to
undertake welfare activities for helpless widows, the old and
meritorious poor students’ on the occasion.


“This would be the most valuable and important
gift for me,” she said and asked BSP workers to celebrate the occasion
with simplicity in view.


Mayawati said a book My Story of Struggle:
BSP’s Journey - Part 3 would be released on the occasion in New Delhi
and also promised a slew of schemes for the people, but refused to
divulge them till then.


The Original Inhabitant of Jambudvipa i.e.The
Great Prabuddha Bharath leader was earlier this week virtually given a
clean chit by the Income Tax Appellate Tribunal which said she received
gifts out of veneration and personal esteem.


Mass conversion held in Nellore district of Andhrapradesh under the banner of AMBEDKAR DHARMA PORATA SAMITHI(ADPS)


There was a big mass conversion held in Nellore
district of Andhrapradesh under the banner of AMBEDKAR DHARMA PORATA
SAMITHI(ADPS) , means Ambedkar’s Dharma Struggle Committee, the

programmed held in Nellore Town hall, on 25th December 2007, began
around 4.30Pm. and ended 6.30p.m after taking big rally in the streets
of Nellore town with Jaibheem and long live Buddhism slogans by
committed cadres of ADPS. Around 2000+ participated in proframme,
includes mainly dalits, few tribals, obc casts and interestingly some
muslims also got converted. The rural crowd mostly seemed to be very
serious about buddhist conversion.  The occasion they choose is on
December 25, on which day Babasaheb burnt Manusmuthi publicly , which is
based on inequality and cruelty on humanity. From Bangalore I attended
with Some BSP friends and translated Bhanteji.s english speech into
Telugu.

New Delhi (PTI): Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati on Sunday said her party would not forge any alliance with the Congress or the BJP and maintained the BSP’s victory in Uttar Pradesh was a glimpse of what was to unfold at the national level.

Thoughts-of-an-ordinary-man

Mayawati to celebrate 52nd birthday

Present Chief Minister of UP and strong BSP leader Bahanji Mayawati will celebrate her 52nd birthday tomorrow. Born on 15 January, 1956 in Delhi, Mayawati has achieved great heights in her political career. She has emerged as stronger leader in Indian politics after winning the UP election without the support of any other political party. Many people believe her great social engineering skills behind her great success in UP.

Mayawati also holds the credit of first Dalit women to become the Chief Minister of any state of India. She was also chief minister of UP for three times earlier with the support of BJP but this time she is CM without any external support. Therefore, we can hope that this birthday of Mayawati will be a great affair for Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and therefore, BSP will try hard to make this birthday of Mayawati a memorable moment for her.

Already, preparations for her Birthday are almost complete and her houses in Lucknow and Delhi are given complete makeover to look attractive. Mayawati’s birthdays have always remained matter of debate in earlier past due to huge funfair and activities. Though, Mayawati has ordered her party men and supporter to stay calm on this birthday, but presently, it looks that they are not ready to obey her. Mayawati’s birthday is also famous for exchange of expensive gifts and money and already, Mayawati has asked her supporters and workers to give money for the party works.

Opposition’s parties in UP have already started blaming Mayawati for forcefully getting money from people on the name of her birthday. After this massive win in UP, Maywati is very optimistic about winning more elections nationwide and she has also shown her interest for the Prime Minsiter seat. May be Mayawati need more money for this purpose and making her parties more strong in other states of India? Real picture of her birthday celebrations will only be available in front us by tomorrow night only.

Mayawati to acquire new aircraft for personal use

Lucknow, December 8: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati has decided to buy a brand new aircraft for her personal travel and sent off senior officials in her government to the United States to negotiate the deal.

Senior officials, including Principal Secretary to the Chief Minister Shailesh Krishna, have flown to the US Friday to shop for the latest aircraft to add to the fleet.

Official sources told IANS that the plane was being bought for the state government, but the aircraft will be for her personal use. Mayawati already has two planes of the state government at her disposal.

Just recently the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief flew in a chopper from her official residence in Lucknow to the Ramabai Rally Sthal, to address a mammoth rally on the occasion of BSP leader Kanshi Ram’s death anniversary, much to the delight of her supporters.

“Her travel by air makes her Original Inhabitants of Jambudvipa i.e., The Great Prabuddha Bharath supporters feel proud of her as they see it as another milestone in their social advancement.

Plans to purchase an exclusive aircraft for her travel have been in the pipeline for almost a month.

“A Original Inhabitants of Jambudvipa i.e., The Great Prabuddha Bharath  ki beti (daughter of a Schedule Caste) using a chopper, becoming chief minister of the India’s largest state  gives the Schedule Castes a sense of achievement.

India to buy 3 Boeings for VVIPs

September 06, 2005 17:04 IST

Close on the heels of acquiring Embraer executive planes, the government on Tuesday cleared the purchase of three wide-bodied Boeing 737-700 business executive jets, equipped with missile deflecting security suits, for dedicated long-distance travel by VVIPs.

To be bought at a cost of over Rs 1,000 crore (Rs 10 billion), these jets will replace the two ageing Boeing 737-200 aircraft purchased in 1983 for VVIP travel, Defence Minister Pranab Mukherjee said after a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Security in New Delhi presided over by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

These executive jets will be delivered by January 2009 and will be fitted with missile deflecting security suits at a cost of $44.6 million (Rs 200 crore). The three planes will cost $169.90 million (about Rs 800 crore).

According to officials of Boeing, a US firm, the planes can fly 12 hours non-stop and are configured to carry 20 to 25 persons. They said it was up to the Indian Air Force to decide on the capacity of the aircraft.

The aircraft have a specialised communication chamber, a bed area, a security chamber and certain specialized facilities.

The Boeing company has sold 80 of these exclusive executive jets worldwide including three in India. One of these planes is being flown by Sahara for its top executives.

The decision to purchase the aircraft comes close on the heels of delivery of three of the five Embraer Legacy Jets. Five of these jets have been purchased at a cost of about Rs 780 crore (Rs 7.80 billion).

While the four Embraer planes will flown by the Communications Squadrons of the Air Force for VVIP domestic travel, one would be assigned to the Union home ministry to be operated by the Border Security Force aviation unit.

While three of these jets have already arrived in India, the remaining two are expected to be delivered in the next 12 months. These jets, like the new Boeings, are also fitted with US-built missile deflecting security systems.

Boeing BBJ, New Delhi's Air Force 1

The Indian Air Force is slated to begin testing in 2008 for its first $60 million Boeing Business Jet after it is equipped with a system designed to protect the aircraft from attack by ground or air based threats. The aircraft’s intended duties will include transport of India’s “VVIPs” — its prime minister and top cabinet officials — and otherwise serve as India’s version of Air Force 1. The aircraft is expected to fulfill its role as part of a modernization plan that would allow dignitaries increased overseas range of 6,000 nautical miles, plus increased comfort, and an entourage of up to 49 people. It is only the first of three such aircraft on order with the IAF and is expected to enter service in April of 2008 after its defense systems have been successfully tested.

 

IAF planning to procure advanced choppers

NEW DELHI, June 19: Indian Air Force is planning to procure eight advanced helicopters, equipped with special systems to ward off missile attacks, to ferry the President, the Vice-President, the Prime Minister and other VVIPs.

“The new VVIP helicopters will have advanced avionics, protection, electronic counter-measures, night visions as well as advanced communication,” top Defence Ministry officials said.

“These helicopters will have features like those recently chosen to transport the US President,” they said.

The Government has floated tenders for the aquisition of special choppers with leading companies like Augusts Westland EH101, Eurocopter Cougar, Sikrosky SH-62, Bell Helicopters and Kazan M-172 choppers.

The new VVIP helicopters will replace the IAF old warhorse Mi-8 helicopters inducted in 1982.

The IAF is seeking a three-engined helicopter with flying ceiling higher than 17,000 feet to enable them to transport VVIPs to remote areas.

The air force, at present, has about 400 helicopters most of which are ageing Mi-8 version which do not have night flying capability.

The force also has a large number of twin-seater Cheetah and Chetak Mi-24 and 35 gunships as well as modern Mi-17s of Russian make.

With the force on the verge of acquiring first of the five advanced embraer passenger jets from Brazil for ferrying VVIPs in the country, IAF officials said the VVIP squadron would be expanded soon by infusion of more technical personnel as well as advanced repair and overhaul facilities.

The first of legacy jets ENB135PJ is scheduled to be delivered in August this year and two more by year-end. India has signed a deal with Brazil for the supply of five jets to replace the VVIP squadron’s ageing Boeing 737.

IAF sources said these jets before delivery would be flown to boeing facilities in the United States to equip them with special protection and advanced electronic measures. Washington after initial reluctance had recently cleared the proposal for equipping the aircraft with special systems.

The expansion of the VVIP squadron has to be undertaken due to induction of these new VVIP jets as well as advanced helicopters, the sources said.

India is also considering plans to acquire two wide bodied jets for foreign tours of VVIPs. The President, Vice-President and the Prime Minister currently use air India’s wide-bodied jumbo for foreign tour. (PTI)

Mayawati wants Bharat Ratna for Kanshi Ram

Lucknow, Jan 12 (ANI): Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief, Mayawati today said that the Bharat Ratna should also be conferred on her party’s founder Kanshi Ram for his contributions in the uplift of the Dalits.

“Kanshi Ram should also be conferred Bharat Ratna for his invaluable contributions in the uplift of Dalits and the oppressed,” she said.

Earlier, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader L K Advani wrote a letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh recommending that the top civilian award be given to former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

After that the name of the CPI-M veteran Jyoti Basu had also cropped up.

But, today, the Left has put cold water on its suggestions, saying that the party does not accept state awards.

On Thursday, Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Priya Ranjan Dasmunsi had said that the issue must not be raised in public. (ANI)

Mayawati wants Bharat Ratna for Kanshi Ram
 

From correspondents in Uttar Pradesh, India, 05:01 PM IST

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati has demanded that her mentor and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) founder Kanshi Ram should be honoured with Bharat Ratna, the country’s highest civilian award.

In a letter sent to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Saturday afternoon, Mayawati has drawn his attention to late Kanshi Ram’s contribution in creating the awakening among Dalits and other marginalized sections of society.

‘Kanshi Ram also did a yeoman service in breaking the barriers between different lower castes so that these could unite themselves into a meaningful political force and assert their rights,’ she noted.

The move was being seen as yet another salvo from Mayawati on the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government, with which she has been engaged in a tug-of-war over various political issues since she assumed office in May 2007.

Her demand comes a few days after Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader L.K. Advani wrote to Manmohan Singh, proposing former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s name for the top honour.

  Thai sugar surplus may sour Indian interest
Commodity Online
NEW DELHI: As if India’s production glut is not enough in the global market, Thailand, the biggest sugar exporting country after Brazil, is likely to produce a record .7 million tonne sugar this year.

The problem is the consumption in Thailand is hardly 1.8 million tones and the rest of the produce will come to the global market which in turn will hit the Indian interest.

According to available data, Thailand had produced 6.8 million tonnes last year, of which 5 million tonnes were exported.

Indian sugar sector is already reeling under production glut problems. India’s sugar mills and government are still struggling to deal with the problem of plenty in sugar sector.

Record Thai output is bound to increase the global sugar surplus, which will be around 11.05 million tonne in the marketing year ending September 30.

This will result in a price crash. The prices had gone down 8 per cent last year and 20 per cent the year before.

Normal weather and the current attractive sugar Futures price were helping to boost output in Thailand. Thailand exports both raw and white sugar, mostly to Asia.

Raw sugar Futures for March delivery rose 1.1 per cent to 11.57 cents a pound on ICE Futures US on Thursday. The price has gained 6.9 per cent this month.

However, the Thailand news is not good for India. The domestic production, especially in Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh, is giving farmers sleepless nights as they are not getting even the production cost from their produce. The government’s minimum support price scheme is also under strain now with the sugar mills finding it difficult to pay the amount.

In Uttar Pradesh, the minimum support price scheme is under the legal scanner now with the plan challenged in the Supreme Court following an order from the Allahabad High Court.

Maya ready to risk political isolation


11 Jan 2008, 0226 hrs IST,Subodh Ghildiyal ,TNN

NEW DELHI: Congress leadership has refused to censure the new-found aggression against BSP and reacted unfavourably to chief minister Mayawati’s non-negotiable demands of SPG cover and mega-package for Uttar Pradesh, in what is being seen as the paving of way for a divorce with the Dalit outfit on January 15.

But for a last-day ‘birthday diplomacy’, BSP chief Mayawati would be politically isolated in the run-up to Lok Sabha polls, in sharp contrast to the overdrive which parties have gone into to form political fronts. There is a sense of anticipation across the anti-Congress spectrum over the denouement.

While there is palpable glee in Samajwadi Party, which sees itself as the raison d’etre of the friendship, the Left front has always been more comfortable with ’socialist’ Mulayam Singh Yadav than the unpredictable Dalit leader. The two are also set to come together for Central stakes.

BJP is already buzzing with hope over a falling out between BSP and Congress, in what would be good news for all. Only Congress seems caught in a tight corner.

It is learnt that Mayawati has decided on ‘anti-Congressism’ as the agenda of her coming battles and has shrewdly worked towards a separation plan. Sources said demands of SPG security cover and over Rs 80,000 crore package for Uttar Pradesh were crafted to trigger a split. Congress was lulled by the ‘comfort’ provided by its Central regime to UP chief minister and did not expect such a sharp turn of events.

According to the big picture, the Dalit outfit is positioning itself for a post-Lok Sabha scenario, with its ‘neutrality’ aimed to keep it afloat for an alliance irrespective of the winner in Mandate 2009.

But crucially, Mayawati’s distancing from Congress stems from the conclusion that BSP’s growth plans hinge on a strident anti-Congress line. BSP is hoping to dent Congress in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra and Karnataka by poaching on its Dalit votebase. Party managers are working ceaselessly to mobilise Dalits in these states by roping in rebels.

The same comes after it made a modest beginning in Himachal Pradesh and Gujarat elections but did enough to hurt Congress. Contrary to the much-hyped Brahmin card, the party is banking on OBC leaders in these states to hammer out a Dalit-OBC combination which could impact the Congress base.

Insiders say BSP cannot be “soft” on Congress if it is to succeed in weaning away Dalits from the rival fold. Only in Madhya Pradesh would the party have to work against ruling BJP. In what would be an onslaught on Congress, BSP has identified ‘reservation in private sector’ as its rallying slogan. Aggression on the issue would put the Congress in firing line.

The lead UPA player had followed its Lok Sabha win with a high-pitch rhetoric on ‘private sector quota’ but has since let it fizzle out. On the other hand, UP CM is citing the ‘quota’ announced by her in PPP projects in UP to woo Dalits.

Though the UP landslide has created a ‘Mayawati sentiment’ among Dalits nationally, it is estimated that BSP would have to project Congress as hostile to Dalits to exploit the advantage. Observers say Mayawati’s high-pitch drama on security and charging Congress with a conspiracy to kill her are aimed at projecting the party in anti-Dalit light.

Former TRS member, ‘Tiger’ Narendra finally took the plunge and joined BSP recently in a bid to be back in active politics in Andhra Pradesh. He is now back into the groove after lying low for a brief period due to an unproven human trafficking case.

Rate this article:
 Rating  3.33 out of 3 votes cast

FORMER CENTRAL Minister and MP from Andhra Pradesh, A Narendra joined Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) on January 6 this year in the presence of Mayawati at Hyderabad.
 
Narendra was a hardcore RSS (Rastriya Swayamsevak Sangh) activist, and was previously a member of the TRS (Telangana Rashtra Samithi). He is popularly known as ‘Tiger’ among his followers and party cadre. Narendra was elected to the Lok Sabha in 2004 elections from Medak constituency of Andhra Pradesh under the TRS banner. Very soon, he took oath as a central minister in UPA government. After one and half years, TRS withdrew from UPA government. At that time Narendra also resigned his post.
 
Gradually, TRS chief K Chandra Sekhararao started differing with Narendra’s attitude. He gave many warnings to Narendra. But Narendra did not pay heed to the party warnings and continued with his controversial statements. He was then suspended from TRS. After that he formed a new party TRS (Narendra) with his followers.
 
Since the last six months he has kept low in state politics as four months back his name came out in a human trafficking case. But it has not been proved till now.
 
Narendra began his political career with RSS. He was identified as a hardcore RSS volunteer. Due to his dashing nature, he was nicknamed as Tiger Narendra. Till 2003 he played a key role in BJP. Just before 2004 general elections, he came out from BJP. He then started a forum to achieve Telangana separate state. While the movement was at its peak, he merged his forum in TRS Party.
 
He became the focal point of controversial statements numerous times. For the past couple of months he had been discussing his political career with his followers.
 
Finally on January 2, he decided to join the BSP in a meeting convened by his followers. He would join BSP in the presence of Uttar Pradesh chief minister and party supremo, Mayawati. The State BJP unit conducted a meeting on January 6 at Hyderabad. BSP head Mayawati also attended the meeting. Narendra and his followers joined BSP on that day in a big way.

Political spat over Bharat Ratna deepens

Friday, 11 January , 2008, 21:17 New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)’s demand to honour former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee with the country’s highest civilian honour, Bharat Ratna, has triggered a fresh row among political parties

While the BJP on Friday took strong offence to Information and Broadcasting Minister Priya Ranjan Dasmunsi’s remark that the Bharat Ratna could not be “demanded,” the Left parties jumped in the fray, saying that veteran Marxist leader Jyoti Basu could also be given the award.

A senior Communist Party of India (Marxist) leader took strong exception to the BJP’s attempt to “politicise” the award.

Responding to media persons’ questions in Kolkata, CPI-M politburo member Biman Bose said: “I don’t know the parameters under which Bharat Ratna is awarded or whether Vajpayee fulfils that criteria. But it is definite that they are doing politics over it.”

Asked whether Basu should be awarded the Bharat Ratna, Bose said: “I don’t know whether Basu fulfils the parameters. If he fulfils it, Basu can be given the highest civilian award.”

Meanwhile, the BJP reacted sharply to Dasmunsi’s comments. “It is a communication between the Leader of the Opposition (L K Advani) and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. What does a Union Minister have to do with it?” BJP spokesperson Rajiv Pratap Rudy said to reporters here.

Advani had written to the prime minister proposing Vajpayee’s name for the honour for Vajpayee’s contribution to the nation and strengthening democracy. Wondering why the Leader of Opposition had written such a letter, Dasmunsi said a committee formed by the government would decide on the awards.

“Such matters are not decided though letters,” the Minister said.

The Bharat Ratna was last conferred on shehnai maestro Ustad Bismillah Khan and India’s nightingale Lata Mangeshkar in 2001.

Mayawati gives jitters to Congress leadership

G.V.L. Narasimha Rao

The countdown for the next general election has begun. All the parties have started their preparations in right earnest. The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) factor has emerged as a key imponderable for the main contenders for power, the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party.
 
The BSP acted as a spoiler for the Congress party in the Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh assembly elections. Though the party secured only 2.6% and 7% of the popular vote in Gujarat and Himachal, respectively, it hurt the Congress in as many as 14 seats in Gujarat and nine seats in Himachal Pradesh.
 
Earlier in 2004, the BSP undermined the Congress-NCP alliance in the Vidharbha region, where the combine lost 10 of the 11 seats—four of them on account of the BSP factor.
In the New Delhi municipal polls last year, the BSP polled an impressive 10% and won 15 wards to help an emphatic BJP win.
 
In key states scheduled to go to polls this year, namely Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, the BSP has a sizeable presence and the potential to wreck the Congress’ prospects. Even in Karnataka, due for polls in April-May this year, the BSP could wreck the Congress’ already feeble prospects.
 
The BSP tends to hurt the Congress more than the BJP or any other party mainly because nationwide, the Congress is the preferred party of Original Inhabitants of Jambudvipa ie., The Great Prabuddha Bharath and, thus, receives the lion’s share of the Original Inhabitant of Jambudvipa ie., The Great Prabuddha Bharath vote in all states, except in Uttar Pradesh where Mayawati has replaced the Congress as the preferred party.
 
Mayawati is now threatening to do to the Congress all over the country what she has done to that party in Uttar Pradesh.
 
Mayawati’s success in Uttar Pradesh is a result of her social engineering strategy where the BSP—with a firm and committed Dalit vote base—has won the support of the Brahmins and a section of the backwards to secure an outright majority in the assembly. Brahmins account for one-sixth of the Uttar Pradesh electorate but have not received commensurate participation in the power sharing structure.
 
Mayawati is trying to replicate the Uttar Pradesh formula everywhere by attracting the BSP’s natural constituency of Original Inhabitant of Jambudvipa ie., The Great Prabuddha Bharath  voters and other numerically strong communities that have not received due share of political power. For Mayawati’s game plan to succeed, she will have to first cross a threshold level in vote share to be able to attract these dominant yet neglected castes.
Hence, Mayawati is making frantic attempts to wean away a large chunk of the Original Inhabitant of Jambudvipa ie., The Great Prabuddha Bharath  vote nationally from the Congress. This is possible only if she projects herself as a “victim” and the Congress as the “culprit” and “oppressor”. Towards this end, Mayawati is promising reservations in private sector to the scheduled castes, tribes and other backward castes as a bait and projecting herself as the true champion of the downtrodden.
 
Mayawati’s victory in Uttar Pradesh that defied all odds has sent a positive message to  Original Inhabitants of Jambudvipa ie., The Great Prabuddha Bharath nationally. Dalit leaders, mostly from the Congress, and Original Inhabitant of Jambudvipa ie., The Great Prabuddha Bharath  officials across the country are assisting Mayawati in her all-India plans. In Mayawati, the community sees a potential first ever Original Inhabitant of Jambudvipa ie., The Great Prabuddha Bharath prime minister.
 
Emotional issue
 
Mayawati will make a huge impact on Original Inhabitant of Jambudvipa ie., The Great Prabuddha Bharath  voters nationwide when she projects herself as a prime ministerial candidate in the forthcoming Lok Sabha polls. Her party’s performance in recent assembly elections is not a true measure of the BSP’s likely support in the Lok Sabha polls as her prime ministerial projection—with its huge emotive and aspirational appeal—may help the BSP emerge as the dominant choice of the Original Inhabitant of Jambudvipa ie., The Great Prabuddha Bharath  voters, particularly the young among them. Voting is habit forming in nature and if Original Inhabitants of Jambudvipa ie., The Great Prabuddha Bharath  migrate to the BSP once, it will be very difficult for the Congress to win them back.
 
In the 2004 Lok Sabha elections, the BSP secured 5.3% of the national vote, which was marginally higher than its vote share of 4.2% in the 1999 Lok Sabha polls. According to my estimates, if the BSP secures an additional 5% of votes, i.e. if it manages to increase its vote share to 10%, it is likely to win around 50 seats nationally and could unintentionally deliver as many as 50 additional seats to the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance nationally than what this combine might win otherwise in the 2009 Lok Sabha polls. This could send the Congress’ national tally plummeting down to less than 100 seats.
 
For the Congress, the BSP threat is real and the party may face gradual UP-like marginalization if the BSP succeeds in making a deep dent in the Congress’ Original Inhabitant of Jambudvipa ie., The Great Prabuddha Bharath vote in the 2009 Lok Sabha polls. The stage is set for a huge battle between the Congress and the BSP for the Original Inhabitant of Jambudvipa ie., The Great Prabuddha Bharath  constituency. Can the Congress ward off Mayawati’s challenge? This is a key question that will determine the Congress’ future and ironically, that of the NDA as well.
