BRITISH Prime Minister Boris Johnson hailed the Diwali spirit of “the victory of light over darkness” and “good over evil” as he delivered a message of optimism about overcoming the coronavirus pandemic for a first-of-its-kind virtual Diwali festival this weekend.

Johnson appealed for a “huge collective effort” as England entered its second stay-at-home lockdown earlier this week, to last at least until December 2, in order to curb a surge in coronavirus infections across the country.

“While undoubtedly there are huge challenges ahead, I have every confidence in the resilience and resolve and good sense of people across the country and that together we will overcome this virus, just as Diwali teaches us that light triumphs over darkness, good over evil, knowledge over ignorance,” said Johnson from 10 Downing Street in London on Friday.

“Just as Lord Rama and his wife Sita found their way home after the defeat of the demon king Ravana, their way lit by many millions of lamps, so too we shall find our way through this, and we shall do so triumphantly,” he said.

SOME INTERESTING NEWS FROM TAMIL NADU

The ancestral village of US Vice President-elect Kamala Harris woke up early on Sunday to soak in the glory of “village daughter” Kamala becoming the first woman Vice President of the United States.

 Residents of Thulasendrapuram had earlier put up posters, banners extending support to Kamala as the next Vice President. On Sunday, there were congratulatory rangoli messages in front of the houses, soon after Kamala Harris delivered her first speech as the Vice-President elect, in which she remembered Shyamala Gopalan Iyer who was from Tiruvarur.

The village and its congratulatory message was featured even in New York Times.

Shyamala Gopalan, from India, and Donald Harris, from Jamaica, met at the University of California, Berkeley. Both of them were active in the civil rights movement. Kamala Harris was born in 1964. After their divorce, Harris was raised by her mother.

In the meantime, Tamil Nadu Minister Kamaraj performed Puja at the temple in Tulasenrapuram after hearing the good news.

Another good news from the Mdras High Court is…………………..

Observing that temples in Tamil Nadu are not only a source of identification of the ancient culture but also a testimony of pride and knowledge of the talent in the fields of arts, science and sculpture, the Madras High Court on Wednesday said the state government cannot use temple lands for any purpose other than for holding religious functions.

The court also directed the Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments Department to identify and safeguard all temple lands from encroachers with an officer in charge filing periodical reports.

The issue pertains to the encroachment of lands of the Sakthi Muthamman temple near Neelankarai and the Kottai Mariamman temple in Salem. The court pronounced its orders in the batch of pleas filed by several petitioners over the encroachment of temple land.

Justice R Mahadevan in his order observed that the properties of religious institutions, particularly temples, have to be maintained properly.

“However, the HR&CE Department, which is the custodian of the temple properties, has not taken any steps to protect the interests of temples, though the subject falls within its purview. Such a callous attitude on their part cannot be countenanced,” added the court.

Ordering the removal of encroachments from temple lands, the judge also called for the fisheries department that has constructed a building near Neelankarai to enter into an agreement with the HR and CE department for which rent will be collected.

NEWS FROM KERALA

Now let me conclude with some news from ANDHRA PRADESH……….

Darshan of Sri Bhu Varaha Swamy at Tirumala will be suspended for six months from December 10 with the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) finally approving the much-awaited gold plating works of the temple. A decision in this regard was taken at a meeting of TTD officials held in Annamayya Bhavan on Wednesday. 

According to TTD Additional Executive Officer AV Dharma Reddy, Balalayam will be constructed from December 6 to 10 and Ankurarpanam for it will be performed on December 5. 

According to Agama traditions, Balalayam is constructed at any temple for renovation of sanctum sanctorum, which is also known as ‘Jeernodharana’.

    Some items of news which will not find place in the main media, Thanks for that.
    However, one disturbing news is about Kamala Harris. Despite her Indian name , she is not an Indian. She was born in America and is an American. [ Let us remember all Americans are in origin, from other countries., but they are Americans, born in America. They have no links with the country of origin. . Only those who migrated from other countries and obtained citizenship in the US ( like our NRIs holding Green Card now0 may retain some links with the home country. Kamala Harris was born in the US, and is therefore an American, not Indian.
    KAMALA HARRIS IS A BAPTIST CHRISTIAN . IT IS REPORTED THAT SHE HAS NO LOVE FOR HINDUS OR HINDUISM. LET US REMEBER CONVERTED CHRISTIANS ARE MORE HATEFUL, MORE FANATIC THAN OTHERS
    It is foolish on the part of Indians- especially Hindus to celebrate her victory. ( a victory her party has stolen by fraud- let us await the court verdict.)
    TULSI GABBARD, ON THE CONTRARY IS A PRACTISING HINDU.
    See the hand of the powerful churches in the nomination of Kamala Harris. The US administration has been traditionally against India since our Independence. One Kamala Harris is not going to change that. Trump was an exception. It is simply senseless for Indians to rejoice for Kamala Harris.
