Indian HM refutes talks with Pak counterpart

MYREPUBLICA
KATHMANDU Sept 1: The Indian Ministry of Home Affairs has refuted media reports that Home Minister Rajnath Singh is holding bilateral talks with his Pakistani counterpart Chaudhary Nisar Ali Khan on the sidelines of the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) home ministerial meeting in Kathmandu.

Issuing a press statement, on Sunday, the Indian Home Ministry termed the media reports as ´incorrect´ and ´fabricated´. The SAARC home ministerial meeting is scheduled for September 17-19 in Kathmandu. Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh is arriving in Kathmandu on Sept 18 to take part in the meeting. [More]

  The day of the Elephant-God  
  BY NITYA PANDEY  
 
Accidents, mishaps and misfortunes can be avoided by worshipping Lord Ganesha before beginning any auspicious activity.

Goddess Parvati, the better half of Lord Shiva, was yearning for a child. One day, while she was taking a bath with turmeric and water, she started rubbing the turmeric off her body. Then she molded the residue thus derived into a human structure. With her powers, she breathed life into the image. Within seconds, a little boy magically appeared before her. She called him her son and commanded him to guard the main gate of her palace. Lord Shiva, who was not home at the moment, returned in the evening. The little boy stopped him from entering his own house. Shiva was so angry with the boy’s audacity that he cut off his head and entered the palace. When Parvati came to know about this, she told her husband that he was her son and pleaded him to bring him back to life. Lord Shiva, softened by his wife’s tears, asked his messengers to bring him a head of any creature to be attached to the dead boy’s body. They searched far and wide and stumbled across an old elephant with a single tooth. They cut off its head and presented it to their lord. Shiva then brought the boy back to life with his powers.

This day, also known as Bhadra Shukla Chaturthi (the fourth day of the waxing moon period), is regarded as the birthday of the little boy brought back from the dead, who went on to be worshipped as Lord Ganesha.
