Dr Devsare was so supportive to my new initiatives as the longest serving Head of National Centre of Children's Literature that every time he had any new idea for promotion of children's literature,he used to share it with me.If I rate any children's author in India as great as my favorite besides Odia/English author Manoj Das,it is Harikrishna Devsare.

I was for over two decades in the Executive Board of many organisations including Dr Harikrishna Devsare Children's Literature Trust.It was a great honour for me.But, since I have relocated from Delhi I requested the Managing Trustee to spare me.

Manoj Das had a distinct status in my life,for the fact  that I would not have thought of becoming an editor had I not come across him. People of my geneation have grown with his writings.

I am lost after the death of Manoj Das as Manoj Das is undoubtedly the best author in Odia of our time and we all want him to remain active and joyful...

There is an effort these days to project Manoj Das as a nationalist author.But, he was much above the petty nationalism in his writings and he always had concerns for common people.

While thinking of Manoj Das and his concern for people, let us begin from home. My friend Shantakar Chelapila from the tribal belt of Koraput has a point:

‘How to strengthen the economy of the state ?

We want a greater Odisha with more areas and revenue.A greater Odisha is needed to collect from periphery , grow at Bhubaneswar and say that our remote areas are beautiful places in the world !

The world will encash the misery of Odia people and enjoy their poverty .Once you have decentralised education , revenue , culture and administration, it would bring great business to Bhubaneswar .

The moment government schools are closed there will be loss of job for teachers , cooks , caretakers , SHG women group , MDM suppliers , egg suppliers etc .Hence there will be more strikes , demonstrations , dharnas for months and years .All these thousands of people would carry their money from all across the state and spend it in the capital city of Bhubaneswar .Economy of Bhubaneswar would rise from Gupchupwala to the Goldsmith or Merchants !

As the government won't listen to them , they would collect Chandaas from each member and once again money from periphery would reach in Lakhs to please the listeners of the demands of thousands .

Certainly a great plan by our friends in the best interest of The Capital City !

I don’t agree with the vested interest people and so,inspite of helping all in need I am not taken as a friend ? People get upset when I find the so called nationalistic celebration of 150 Years of Mahatma Gandhi a lucrative business for many organisations.Governments across states including Odisha are busy in fooling people by attracting programmes and projects.Let us think of a larger home and the World.

A recent survey reveals that the majority of Indians have trust in science and scientists. They believe that science will make their lives better.It is required now not to promote irrational thoughts and beliefs which will kill the scientific spirit and the motivation to strive hard to be successful in life.

While we encourage the country to encourage scientific temper, not pseudoscience and for fostering the scientific spirit of its common citizens,Talibans have distabilised the Political climate of Asia.The pursuit of diplomacy is the biggest failure for Present Indian Leadership now in Asia especially in relation to Afghanistan.Indian establishment paid useless lip service to diplomacy as in enhancing and protecting the stste interests and more to showmanship. Getting closer to Afghanistan Presidents, the last 2 might have had limited benefits in terms of short term gains but there was no focus on understanding Afghanistan and Talibans.

But our PM is keen on his brilliant plans of disinvestment and has a Parliament Vista to earn more for the party funds.Building a fabulous Parliament House does not ensure democracy as we have learnt now from Afghanistan. We need not waste Billions in the proposed Parliament Vista and should oppose it.

It is similar to what the US did in their country.

U.S. officials systematically misled the public about the war in Afghanistan, according to internal documents obtained now by people .It has come to people’s knowledge that,there
were many players in Afghanistan.USA is one overt face for elimination of radicalism and establish a Islamic land compatible with good human values.There were others but without a face,China is one among them.Through diplomacy and without spending money and human resources it snatched the victory over US and allies.Afganistan people were just playing material for them.China used Pakistan extremely well against USA.One thing is very amazing.Afganistan is a land locked country.So from where Talibans got so much arms , ammunition and vehicles to fight, who made their cadres battle trained.Almost all bordering countries were not supporter of Taliban's except Pakistan.

The US was expected to know everything but they closed their eyes.There might be a bigger game plan by US and allies to contain China,Pakistan and India without their direct involvement in future.

Lessons learnt from Afghanistan

1. Your dream house, dream car, dream life, bank balance, business shall all turn to dust if your nation does not stand.

2. Your assets are valueless if your country has no asset.

3. You can become a refugee in minutes if your leaders are looking for pleas to fool you and impose taxes as in India Today.

But, you can’t go out like Afghans as :

Canada bans flights in and out, and the daily Covid death toll exceeds 1,000.

Saudi Arabia is blocked and there are no flights in and out.

Tanzania is completely blocked.

Brazil fell into the deadliest chapter, with more than 4,100 deaths today.

Spain has announced that the state of emergency can be extended.

The United Kingdom announced a one-month lockdown.

France Locked for 2 weeks.

Germany Sealed for 4 weeks. Italy followed closely today.

All these countries/regions have confirmed that the third wave of COVID 19 is more deadly than the first & second wave. Therefore, we must be very careful and take all precautions.
Don't judge by the second wave of blockade that nothing happened.History tells us that, like the Spanish flu of 1917-1919, the third wave may be more dangerous than the first and second waves.

But our country is busy with internal petty religious agendas and a belief has been created thatthe previous ruling dispensation was thoroughly corrupt and people were disenchanted with them.Instead of Vaccination of people, next elections are our main focus.
