Make sure I can deliver I-Day speech as PM from Red Fort: Mayawati to BSP workers
Making clear her prime ministerial aspirations, BSP supremo Mayawati
today asked party workers to ensure a big victory for BSP in the next
general elections and warned them against becoming a “saleable
Addressing a rally of party workers here, the former UP Chief
Minister asked her party workers to ensure a big victory for
BSP in the next general elections so that she can “deliver Independence
Day speech as Prime Minister from the Red Fort”.
Mayawati cautioned her party cadre to remain alert against forces
that might “try to corrupt them” during the Assembly and Lok Sabha
“Don’t become a saleable commodity,” she warned.
She accused Congress and BJP of conspiring to stall the bill on quota
in promotion for SCs/STs in government jobs and promised that if her
party comes to power at the Centre, it would ensure that it is
Congress-led UPA government could also have filed a review petition
in the Supreme Court, which had quashed UP government’s decision on
reservation in promotions for SC/STs, but it did not, Mayawati alleged
while addressing a state-level rally of party workers in Nagpur.
Congress could have also asked a competent legal counsel to defend
the case of continuing the reservation quota in promotions, but it did
not do so, she said.
Both Congress and the BJP conspired to deny the rights to lakhs of
government employees, she alleged and asked the cadre to remain
equidistant from both the parties.
BSP had to take the fight to streets and finally to Parliament, she
said, adding “though we have succeeded partially as the Rajya Sabha has
passed the Amendment Bill, but it is still pending in the Lok Sabha.”
She also demanded stringent punishment to those involved in the VVIP helicopter scam.
Opposing the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in retail, Mayawati said
the UPA government should adopt developmental policies which would
benefit the general public.
She also supported creation of Telangana state out of Andhra Pradesh and favoured statehood to Vidarbha.
She also criticised the direct cash transfer in subsidy schemes saying it would not help the poor.
She also demanded stringent punishment to the persons involved in the VVIP helicopter scam.
Alleging that the central government was reluctant to release the
full Indu Mills land in Mumbai for Dr BR Ambedkar’s memorial, she said
if BSP comes to power (at the Centre), the required 100 acres of land
would be parted with.
Suitable museums and memorials of Mahatma Jyotirao Phule and Dr Ambedkar would be constructed in Maharashtra, she promised.
She also said they will construct a memorial of late BSP supremo Kanshiram in Punjab.
She also supported creation of Telangana state out of Andhra Pradesh and favoured statehood to Vidarbha.
Party stalwarts Satish Mishra and state president Vilas Garud also spoke on the occasion.
VOICE OF SARVAJAN
Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati Sunday lashed out at the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for their “pro-corporate” policies and described both parties as “anti-people”.
“Both, the Congress and the BJP, have pro-corporate, anti-people
policies. The United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government at the centre
and the Congress government in Maharashtra have failed to address the
concerns of a common man,” she said while addressing a rally here.
She urged the local party leaders and functionaries to work hard to expand the party’s base in the state.
“The interests of the people belonging to backward classes of the
society have been ignored. I urge the local leadership to unite and
engage these people under the BSP banner,” she said.
Criticising the foreign direct investment (FDI) in retail, Mayawati
said this and other government policies have pushed inflation, poverty
and unemployment at an all-time high.
“The poor and middle class people are the worst affected by such
policies. We (BSP) have always raised our voices to oppose such policies
and come out in support of the marginalised sections of the society,”
Thousands of BSP workers from across Maharashtra gathered here to participate in the rally.
Nagpur, Feb. 17 (ANI): Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) president and former
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati addressed a rally at Kasturchand
Park here on Sunday and asked the local party leaders and workers to
work hard to expand the party mass base in the state.
Accusing regional parties as well as the Congress and the Bharatiya
Janata Party (BJP) of ignoring the interest of the people belonging to
backward classes of the society, Mayawati told to the local leadership
to unite and engage these people under the BSP banner.
Lashing out at the Congress and the BJP over their ‘anti-people’ and
‘pro-corporate’ policies, Mayawati said that the UPA Governments at the
Centre and in the state have failed to address the problems of the
“Inflation, poverty and unemployment are at all time high at present due
to the anti-people and pro-corporate policies of the UPA Government
like FDI in retail sector. And the poor and middle class people are the
worst affected by such policies. BSP has been consistently opposing such
policies and raising voice in support of the people belonging from
marginalized sections of the society,” said Mayawati.
She urged the people to support and elect the BSP to power in the upcoming general elections and state assembly elections.
A large number of BSP workers from Nanded, Pune, Mumbai, Thane, Nashik,
Aurangabad, Latur and adjoining districts, gathered here to hear their
party supremo. (ANI)

neither the Congress nor the BJP can ever face the scribes as once

people of country want mayawati address the nation from Redfort on Aug
15, this is one more manifestation of that desire, it is very strange
when it comes to BSP media talks about money, when it comes to BJP and
Congress it will say silent on money matter, where these parties spend
much more then BSP on any instance.

is always highlighting the issues regarding what mayawati wears,where she
stays, how much money spent on garlands, stage, banners etc , they
never highlight what the content of her speech, how many people
attended the rally etc .Every party is spending on such big rallies, why
then only Mayawati is targetted.Here that Manuwadi soch works.People of
Nagpur erected the model of Red fort and they hope that Mayawati will
address the nation from the real red fort.
The Entire Sarvajan i.e., people will hand over the MASTER KEY only to mayawatiJi like the US did by electing Obama for the second time. It is only the rule of Congress and BJP responsible for creating Black money and for the Price rise. Better question Vajpayee’s son-in-law and other congress leaders for the prevailing corruption. remember that whenever a Scheduled caste/Tribe, OBC/ Minority or the poor becomes eligible for their promotion to their higher promotion they are issued false charge sheets by the mad manuvadis to curtail their higher promotion to elevate a junior mad manuvadi. Now Ms Mayawati has become elegible to become PM, therefore, these false charges. the very same people who elected Indira Gandhi, MGR, NTR and so will now elect Ms mayawatji as the PM.
Jagatheesan Chandrasekharan (Bangalore) replies to zuzu
you come to know that a person belongs to Scheduled Caste then you
start hating, get angry and jealousy. These are defilement of the mind
and nothing but a mental disease. Overcome this disease and become broad
minded like the people of US who elected Obama as President for the
second time and avoid getting hospitalised in a mental asylum.

Questions Answers on
IN BRIEF: Moving through water by the motion of hands and feet.
I often think that we are like the carp swimming contentedly in that pond. — Michio Kaku, Source: Hyperspace : A Scientific
Odyssey Through Parallel Universes, Time Warps, and the 10th Dimension,
The Dream Encyclopedia:
Bodies of water are natural symbols of both the unconscious and the emotions. Dreaming about swimming can thus be related to the emotions or to an exploration of one’s unconscious (a natural dream image for someone undergoing therapy). Also, because we spend the first nine months of our lives in a liquid environment, swimming is also a symbol of birth or rebirth.

When it comes to breathing, new swimmers often struggle to master their technique, while veteran swimmers continually strive to perfect it. Use this guide to get the air you need in the water.
Proper Breathing Technique for Swimming
Learn how to get comfortable in the water and find a rhythm to your breathing, even through a stressful triathlon swim start.
Many swimmers use only one side to breathe on, especially those who log a lot of freestyle yards. One of the most common questions in the
swimming world is should you breathe on one side only or use bilateral breathing?
4 Steps to Easy Breathing in Freestyle
For beginning swimmers, learning to breathe is as important as discovering your stroke. Here are four ways to gradually build your confidence in the water.Breathing Mechanics That Will Help
If breathing breaks your stroke’s rhythm, the solution isn’t to hold your breath. Use these tips to put air in your lungs without compromising your technique.
Extra Air and Fast Turns in Distance
Long pool sets mean lots of flip turns. For some swimmers, not breathing in and out of the turn can leave them gasping for air. Next time
you’re short of breath, try this method.
Mastering the Top 5 Freestyle
The most common questions I hear about the mysteries of swimming efficiently usually involve breathing. Here are the top five challenges in learning how to breathe in freestyle.
Breathing Basics: Getting Comfortable
Until your swimming breath becomes routine, effectively focusing on other aspects of your stroke is impossible. Try this unique out-of-the-pool exercise to help you get comfortable.
Inside-Out Breathing: Get the Air You
There’s probably a greater range of breathing skill in swimming than in any other activity. Elite swimmers can breathe effortlessly while
maintaining perfect form at maximum exertion and world-record pace.
Perfect Your Breathing With a Better

What is the definition for
In recreation and sports, the propulsion of the body through water by combined arm and leg motions. Swimming is popular as an all-around fitness routine and as a competitive sport. It has been included in the modern Olympic Games since their inception in 1896. Events include freestyle (crawl-stroke) races at distances of 50, 100, 200, 400, 800, and 1,500 m;
backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly races at 100 and 200 m; individual
medley races at 200 and 400 m; freestyle relays, 4 ´ 100 m and 4 ´
200 m; and the medley relay, 4 ´
100 m. Long-distance swimming competitions, usually of 15 – 37 mi (24 – 59 km),
are generally held on lakes and inland waters.
Swimming is one of the most popular recreational sports that can be enjoyed by all ages. The ability to swim enables people to participate in a wide variety of water sports such as snorkelling, water skiing, jet skiing, wind surfing, sailing, boating, fishing, rowing, and canoeing, without the fear of getting into trouble, and reduces the risk of drowning. Fear of water, particularly if a person suddenly gets out of
their depth, prevents a lot of people going into a swimming pool or enjoying beach holidays. Many of the newer water sports require expertise in handling a craft as well as swimming proficiency.
Water is a very dangerous place for non swimmers, particularly if it is cold and an excessive amount of alcohol has been drunk. Unfamiliar
surroundings, and no knowledge of local tides, can be lethal to careless individuals. Water-related fatalities are the second leading cause of
accidental death in the UK and Australia, and the third in the US. The risk of drowning is 2.5 deaths per 100000
in USA and 1 per 100 000
in the UK.
Babies are taught to swim at a very young age in some countries; this enables them to learn to swim without fear of the water. They should have had their first two combined immunizations, unless they are being breast-fed. The water temperature should be higher than normal, a minimum of 86°F or 27°C. The time spent in the water should be carefully monitored; this can vary from 10 minutes to 30 minutes but babies should not stay too long in the water as they lose heat rapidly.
Swimmers are usually taught the four swimming strokes used for competitions; the front crawl, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly, which are swum either as a single stroke or in combination over various distances.
There are four phases of each stroke; the reach, catch, pull, and recovery. The arm action during the pull phase provides 75% of the
propulsion in all strokes except the breast-stroke, where the contributions from the upper and lower limbs are equal. During reach or entry the arm reaches forwards to enter the water. In backstroke the arm entry occurs with the shoulder in the fully elevated position. Catch is similar in all competitive strokes except backstroke; the elbow flexes, the arm extends forwards at the shoulder and moves outwards in the horizontal plane whilst rotating towards the body. The pull is the propulsion phase and can vary; the swimmer either sculls or pushes the water. The arm action starts at maximum elevation and ends in extension except in breast-stroke. Recovery is the out of water phase (except breast-stroke), and the arm then returns to start position.
In breast-stroke the arms move together in pull and recovery phase and the arms do not pull below the waistline.
Swimming is a sport that attracts participants of all ages although it is largely a young sport. Competitions are organized by clubs,
schools, and national associations. Short course competitions take place in a 25-metre pool, long course in a 50-metre pool. Olympic swimming competitions are over a variety of distances and strokes, and they take place in 50-metre pools. Synchronized swimming, water polo, and diving are also included in the Olympic program
in the sea may be part of a triathlon race, and open sea races, including
Channel swims, are also held. ‘Masters’ swimming competitions are held for
those over 24 years of age whereas ‘veteran’ sports competitions in athletics
are for the over 40s. Competitions for different age groups are held in most
countries, and world championships also take place.
Competitive swimming is a high-intensity training and
performance sport. During the school year swimming training is divided into two
sessions: the first session is in the early morning before school and the
second session after school. The competitive swimmer usually does an average of
000-18 000 metres per day. The competition programme
for the season should be planned well in advance so that the swimmer can peak
for a specific competition, i.e. the swimmer reduces the amount of training to
get the best result.
Swimming is a relatively injury-free sport and was found to be
the safest of eleven sports surveyed by Weightman and Brown in 1975. It is
non-load-bearing and does not involve antigravity work, resulting in fewer
injuries. The injuries that do occur are usually due to overuse, doing too much
too quickly, or breaking the rules.
To ignore warning signs of strong currents, king waves or rip
tides may have lethal consequences. Diving into the shallow end of a pool or
into a wave or sea where rocks are submerged may result in severe injuries.
Pools should have the depth clearly marked so that swimmers do not dive into
shallow water. Pools used for competition should be marked 2 metres from the
wall at each end to judge when to turn. Flags are placed above the pool 5
metres from the end of the pool for the backstroke turn. There are rules
against running around the pool. Pool discipline should be maintained,
particularly out of the pool to prevent people slipping or jumping into the
pool on top of other swimmers. There should also be strict discipline in the
pool when swimming lengths.
trying to swim a long distance under water should be forbidden, as it increases
the risk of hypoxia
(lack of oxygen), and may result in loss of consciousness and
death by drowning. The hyperventilation removes carbon dioxide and hence delays
the stimulus to breathe when breathholding.
Swimming programmes are helpful for both the mentally and the
physically handicapped as they weigh less in water, and this makes it easier
for them to move their muscles, enabling them to improve muscle tone and
co-ordination of movement. Pregnant women can swim during their pregnancy while
many other sports are not suitable. Swimming is also useful in rehabilitation
of injured athletes. Patients with rheumatoid arthritis can improve their
aerobic capacity by swimming in warm water. Asthmatics should be encouraged to
swim, as swimming is the sport that is least likely to precipitate an asthmatic
attack, and the fitter they are the fewer attacks they have; swimming improves
their breathing. Asthma is not a handicap in achieving excellence in sport as
shown by the number of Olympic gold medal swimmers who were asthmatics.
Water aerobics is becoming a popular method of keeping fit, with
less potential for injury than high impact aerobics. Running in the water is a
useful method for athletes to keep fit, if they are injured and unable to cope
with full weight-bearing on hard surfaces. Hydrotherapy is also an effective
rehabilitation after injury. Swimming is thus a sport that can be enjoyed by
many different groups.
