(अ)भव्य स्टेडियम और भाजपाई नेताओं का क्रिकेट प्रेम!





एक क्रिकेट प्रेमी और भूतपूर्व खिलाड़ी होने के नाते, मुझे खुशी है की हमारा छत्तीसगढ़ भी अब विश्व क्रिकेट में एक अपनी अलग पहचान बनाने में कामयाब होगा... बशर्ते, खिलाड़ियों को पुरी सुविधाएँ मिले और खेल का सही विकास हो, गुणवत्ता का पुरा ध्यान रखा जाए और जितनी जल्दी हो सके 'छत्तीसगढ़ क्रिकेट बोर्ड' का गठन कर उसे 'भारतीय क्रिकेट कंट्रोल बोर्ड' से मान्यता दिलाई जाए।
अगर सही तरीके से और हर सम्भव प्रयास कर क्रिकेट को राज्य में सही दिशा देने की कोशिश की जाए और मुलभुत सुविधाएँ प्रदान किया जाए तो वह दिन दूर नहीं जब हमारे इस छोटे से राज्य से भी 'धोनी', 'पठान', 'रैना' और 'प्रवीण कुमार' जैसे खिलाड़ी हमारे देश का प्रतिनिधित्व करेंगे।
हमारे राज्य में प्रतिभाओं की कमी नही है... जरुरत है तो उन प्रतिभाओं को खोज निकलने और हर सम्भव मदद कर उन्हें मुलभुत सुविधाएं प्रदान करने की। क्रिकेट ही क्यों, अगर सुविधाएं और सही प्लेटफॉर्म मिले तो हमारे राज्य से कई दुसरे और अविकसित एवं अप्रचलित खेलों में भी प्रतिभाएं देश का प्रतिनिधित्व कर नाम रोशन कर सकती है।

चलिए, अब मुद्दे पे आते हैं...
११ सितम्बर, २००८ को राजधानी रायपुर से करीब २४ किमी दूर, ग्राम परसदा में अंतरराष्ट्रीय क्रिकेट स्टेडियम का उद्घाटन हुआ और शायद, राज्य में क्रिकेट का नया अध्याय शुरू हो गया। अंतरराष्ट्रीय ख्याति वाले कई खिलाड़ियों के कदम पहली बार रायपुर में पड़े। स्टेडियम का उद्घाटन राज्यपाल ईएसएल नरसिंहन ने स्टेडियम के सामने लगे पत्थर से पर्दा हटाकर अनावरण करके किया। मैंने किसी अखबार में पढ़ा: "मुख्यमंत्री ने अपने संक्षिप्त संबोधन में लोगों को स्टेडियम के लिए बधाई दी और कहा कि स्टेडियम को भारतीय क्रिकेट कंट्रोल बोर्ड (बीसीसीआई) से जल्द संबद्धता मिलने की उम्मीद है। इसके बाद अंतरराष्ट्रीय स्तर के मैच हो सकेंगे। खेल मंत्री श्री अग्रवाल ने कहा कि अब कोई यह नहीं कह सकेगा कि राज्य में क्रिकेट के लिए अंतरराष्ट्र्रीय स्तर की सुविधा नहीं है।"

क्या स्टेडियम का निर्माण और बीसीसीआई से संबद्धता ही अंतर्राष्ट्रीय स्तर की सुविधा देना है? एक आधे अधूरे स्टेडियम का लोकार्पण करवा देने से ही खेलों का विकास नही हो जाता है। खेलमंत्री बृजमोहन अग्रवाल ने पत्रकारों को एक सवाल के जवाब में यह कहकर दरकिनार कर दिया कि 'खेलने के लिए सबसे जरुरी मैदान होता है और वह तैयार है' और 'पत्रकार सिर्फ़ सवाल पूछता है, बहस नही करता'।

क्या मैदान का तैयार हो जाना ही सब कुछ है? अभी स्टेडियम में इतना काम बाकी है की उसे पुरा होने में लगभग एक वर्ष का समय लग जाएगा। स्टेडियम में इंटीरियर और फिनिशिंग के साथ साथ पेवेलियन, वी आई पी और मिडिया गैलरी का पुरा काम अभी बाकी है। चित्र में स्टेडियम को ध्यान से देखने से साफ़ ज़ाहिर होता है की सिर्फ़ मैदान और अन्दर में गैलरी को छोड़कर बाकी कुछ भी काम नही हुआ है और स्टेडियम को पुरी तरह से अंतर्राष्ट्रीय खेलों के लिए बीसीसीआई को सुपुर्द करने में आने वाला एक साल भी कम पड़ जाएगा। अंतर्राष्ट्रीय स्तर के खेलों के लिए सिर्फ़ स्टेडियम ही काफ़ी नही है। अंतर्राष्ट्रीय खिलाड़ियों एवं अधिकारियों के ठहरने की सुविधायों के साथ साथ, आईसीसी और बीसीसीआई के मापदंडों पर खरा उतरना और दर्शको के लिए मुलभुत सुविधायों का ख्याल रखना भी जरुरी है। छत्तीसगढ़ का यह पहला अंतर्राष्ट्रीय स्टेडियम होने के साथ साथ हमारे राज्य से सटे हुए दुसरे राज्यों के दर्शकों के लिए भी यह उतना ही महत्वपूर्ण है।

भाजपा नेताओं का अचानक यह क्रिकेट प्रेम वैसे कुछ संदेहास्पद और अजीब है। अचानक, आनन् फानन में स्टेडियम का उद्घाटन कर देना, वह भी आधे अधूरे स्टेडियम को, मुझे सोचने पे मजबूर कर देता है। स्टेडियम की समूची लागत ९८.४५ करोड़ रुपए है जिसमें से ख़ुद खेलमंत्री के मुताबिक अभी तक 60 करोड़ खर्च हुए हैं, मतलब ३८.४५ करोड़ रुपए का काम अभी बाकी है... आप इसी बात से अंदाजा लगा सकते हैं की अभी स्टेडियम के पुरा होने में कितना वक्त बाकी है।

शायद 'चुनाव आचार संहिता' लागु होने से पहले ही लोकार्पण करने एवं सरकार एवं उसके मंत्रियों द्वारा इसे अपनी उपलब्धि बताने की पीछे भी एक रहस्य छुपा है. शायद भाजपाई मंत्रियों एवं नेताओं को यह डर लगने लगा है की कहीं आने वाले विधानसभा चुनाव में हार का सामना न करना पड़े. बल्कि उन्हें अब यह लगने लगा है की '३ रु. किलो चावल' एवं 'स्व-घोषित विकास', सरकारी तंत्र एवं सरकार द्वारा किये गए अनगिनत भ्रष्टाचार के सामने कमजोर पड़ गए हैं तथा उनकी हार अब सु:निश्चित है.
इसी कारण से एवं इस डर से की कहीं शिलालेख पर "उनकी" जगह, इस अंतर्राष्ट्रीय स्टेडियम के वास्तविक प्रणेता एवं भूतपूर्व मुख्यमंत्री, श्री अजित जोगीजी - जिनकी दूरदर्शिता, रजनीतिक सोच एवं व्यावसायिक समझ ने इस स्टेडियम को जन्म दिया - का नाम अंकित ना हो जाये, इस भ्रष्टाचारी भाजपाई सरकार ने सारी वर्तमान परिस्थितियों को ताक़ में रखते हुए इस स्टेडियम का लोकार्पण कर दिया.
मुझे तो यह लगता है की कहीं यह भ्रष्टाचारी सरकार, आनन्-फानन में इस अंतर्राष्ट्रीय स्टेडियम का नामकरण कर इसका नाम - "पं. दीनदयाल उपाध्याय अंतर्राष्ट्रीय क्रिकेट स्टेडियम" या फिर "डॉ. श्यामा प्रसाद मुख़र्जी अंतर्राष्ट्रीय क्रिकेट स्टेडियम" भी ना कर दे...

खैर, देर से ही सही, भाजपाइयों को वास्तविक परिस्थितियों की समझ तो आई!

बहरहाल, हमारे भोले-भाले प्रदेशवासियों को अंतर्राष्ट्रीय स्तर के स्टेडियम देखने एवं अपने चहेते खिलाडियों से तथा उनके खेल से भविष्य में रूबरू होने का मौका मिलने पर हार्दिक बधाई एवं श्री अजीत जोगीजी को साधुवाद!

यह सरासर मिथ्या है की इस स्टेडियम का जन्म अजित जोगी द्वारा हुआ था. अजित जोगी सरकार ने बुढा तलब के सामने एक स्टेडियम बनाने की बात जरुर की थी जिसको भी वे पूरा नहीं कर पाए थे. इस स्टेडियम की प्लानिंग से लेकर निर्माण तक सभी कार्य वर्त्तमान सरकार ने किये हैं तो शिलालेख कर उनका नाम आने का पूरा हक है. अगर अगले चुनाव मैं कांग्रेस जीत कर आती है (हा हा हा अभी की स्थिथि मैं तो यह सोचना भी असंभव को सोचने की बात है ) और शिलालेख पर जोगी जी का नाम आता है तो यह सरासर इस सरकार के साथ अनायाय होगा और जोगी को झूट मूट का शरेर मिलेगा.
पंडित दीन दयाल उपाध्याय और श्यामा प्रसाद मुख़र्जी बहुत ही महँ स्वतंत्रता सेनानी रहे हैं और उनके खिलाफ आपके द्वारा इस प्रकार की गयी टिपण्णी अवमानना की श्रेणी मैं आती है और आपके खिलाफ मानहानि एवं राष्ट्रदोह का मुक़दमा चलना चाहिए.

1. Inagurating the incomplete stadium hastily just shows that the BJP govt can go any length to try to improve it's battered image before elections.
2. The construction work for the stadium has moved at a snail's pace.
3. It is one of the glaring examples of BJP Govt's corruption.
4. Holding cricket matches over there, without proper facilities and arrangements can lead to any serious mishap.
5. The Raman Govt went all out to make this occasion a success. I wonder - If the Govt. would have showed such sincerety and committment in their search to find the debris of the State Helicopter which has been missing since months ...

Shame on congress.
YSR's convoy kills child.
Stoppage of vehicular traffic by the police to make way for Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy’s convoy is believed to have led to the death of a six-year-old boy, who was on his way to hospital for treatment of jaundice, here on Saturday.

Now, Mr.YSR recently made a costly purchase of a helicopter with the people's money, it seemed to be a useless purchase anyways.

If these people are actually elected by the people, then it'd seem best that they go through the same traffic problems, and the risk of being blown by a bomb.

Armageddon Thru To You said...

Armageddon Thru To You

If you've been wondering why it seems like the world around us is unraveling, it's because the last days as foretold in the bible are now upon us. Just as it was 2000 years ago, many were unable to discern the signs of Jesus Christ's first coming (Mat 16:3), as will many concerning his second coming, which will occur very soon. Yes many have proclaimed a similar sentiment many times in the past, but their errors have no bearing on today other than to lull you into spiritual apathy, and that too was prophesied to occur in the last days.


If you're not a believer in Jesus Christ because you're an atheist, consider that the underlying impetus for your disbelief is most likely borne of pride and here's why:

When we die, if you as an atheist were right, then there is no upside or downside for anyone regarding the afterlife. We will all simply cease to exist

However if we Christians were right about our belief in the afterlife, then we will be given eternal life and you as an atheist will receive eternal damnation

Given the choices, the position held by an atheist is a fools bet any way you look at it because the atheist has everything to lose and nothing to gain. It is tantamount to accepting a “heads I win, tails you lose” coin toss proposition from someone. And that someone by the way is Satan (see Ephesians 6:12).

The only way to explain the attitude held by an atheist is pride, pure and simple. The intellectually dishonest and/or tortured reasoning used by atheists to try and disprove the existence of God is nothing more than attempts to posture themselves as superior (a symptom of pride). And as anyone who has read their bible knows, this is precisely the character flaw that befell Lucifer, God's formerly most high angel. (Isaiah 14:12-15). Is it any wonder then why the bible is so replete with references to pride as the cause of mankind's downfall?

Pride permeates our lives and burdens us in ways that most of us seldom recognize. Ironically, pride is the one thing that can blind someone to things even the unsighted can see. And sadly pride will blind many with an otherwise good heart, to accepting the offer of eternal salvation that Christ bought and paid for with his life.


In any event, if you're an atheist, I wish you only the best for every day of the rest of your life because for you, this life is as close to heaven as you'll ever get, but for believers in Christ, this life is as close to hell as we'll ever get.





If you're not a believer and follower of Jesus Christ because you are of another faith, please take the time to very carefully compare your faith to Christianity and ask yourself, why is the bible the only religious book with both hundreds of proven prophecies already fulfilled as well as those being fulfilled today? No other religion can claim anything remotely close to this fact. Many Christians who are serious students of bible prophecy are already aware of the role and significance of bible prophecy in foretelling end time events. God gave us prophecy as evidence of his divine holiness to know the begining from the end (Isa 46:10). God also believed prophecy to be so important that to those willing to read the most prophetic book in the bible, the Book of Revelation, he promised a special blessing (see Rev 1:3), and this is the only book in the bible that God gives its reader a special blessing for reading. Something to think about.


Don't risk losing Christ's offer of eternal life by not accepting him as your savior and by thinking that the bible is nothing more than a compilation of unrelated and scattered stories about people who lived 2,000 plus years ago. If you take the time to study (not just read) the bible, you will literally be shocked to learn things you would have never imagined would be revealed in it. Did you know that like parables, God also uses particular months and days in the Jewish calendar, Jewish Feasts and customs, solar and lunar phases, celestial alignments, gematria (Hebrew numerology) early bible events and more as patterns and models to foretell future events?


Consider the following interesting facts about the bible that testify to its God-inspired authorship:

Did you know that in Gen 12:2, God said he would bless Israel?. How else can you explain the grossly disproportionate level of success achieved by Jewish people as a tiny minority in the world, especially after all they have gone through? And how can you explain the success achieved by the tiny nation of Israel, surrounded by enemies outnumbering them 100 to 1 and yet still they remain victorious in all their wars?


Did you know that as evidence to indicate that Israel is the epicenter of the world from God's point of view is the fact that languages to the west of Israel are written and read from left to right as if pointing to Israel, and languages from countries to the east of Israel are written and read from right to left, again as though pointing to Israel. Just a coincidence, you say? I think not.


Did you know that the six days of creation and seventh day of rest in Genesis is a model for the six thousand years of this age (ending very soon), that is to be followed by a 1,000 year millennial reign by Christ (see 2 Peter 3:8)? Adam was born sometime prior to 4000 B.C., therefore our 6000 years are almost up.


Did you kow that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is hidden in the meaning of the Hebrew names listed in the genealogy of the book of Genesis (Research it online)? To deny this was God-inspired, one has to instead believe that a group of Jewish rabbis conspired to hide the Christian Gospel right inside a genealogy of their venerated Torah, which is not a very plausible explanation.


Did you know that solar eclipses, which the bible describes as the sun being black as sackcloth, and lunar eclipses, which the bible refers to as blood red moons, have prophetic meaning? Research it online. God showed Adam (and us) his plan for man's redemption through the use of celestial alignments. (research Mazzaroth online)

Did you know that much of the symbolism in the book of revelation refers to planetary alignments that will occur when certain events occur as prophesied? These planetary alignments also explained the birth of Christ, just search out The Bethlehem Star movie on the Internet.

Did you know that the references in Eze 39:4-17 and Rev 19:17-21 in the battle of Gog/Magog and Armageddon respectively, in which birds of prey will eat the flesh of the dead in battle from two enormous wars is based on fact? The largest bird migration in the world consisting of bilions of birds (34 species of raptors and various carrion birds) from several continents converge and fly over Israel every spring and fall. Coincidence? I think not.

Did you know that Hebrew numerology, also known as Gematria, and the numbers with biblical and prophetic significance are hidden in the Star of David? Google the video called "Seal of Jesus Christ"

Did you know that the seven Churches mentioned at the beginning of the Book of Revelation describe the seven stages the Church will go through?

There are literally hundreds of hidden messages in the bible like these that testify to the fact that the bible was God inspired, and statistically speaking, are all exponentially beyond the likelihood of any coincidence. You can find them yourselves if you only take the time to look into it. Remember Proverbs 25:2 "It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings".


And finally, if you are Catholic, or one who subscribes to the emergent Church or seeker-friendly Church movement, please compare the doctrine taught, advocated or accepted by your Church, with the actual bible, notwithstanding some new-age version of the bible. And remember that although the bible is often referred to as the living bible, the word "living" was never intended to imply in any way that the bible "evolves" over time to meet, or be consistent with, the standards of man. It's just the opposite.


Well, am I getting through to you? If not, the answer might be explained in the response given by Jesus Christ in his Olivet discourse when he was asked by his disciples why he spoke the way he did (in parables, etc.) in the book of Matthew 13:10-16. What Jesus said could have easily been paraphrased more clearly as "so that the damned won't get it". Why did Christ respond the way he did when asked why he spoke this way? Is there something about pride (the bible says there is) that closes one's heart to seeing or hearing the messages supernaturally hidden in bible parables, models, typologies, and similes, etc.? That should give you something to think about, but don't take too long. Time is now very short.


If it sometimes seems like there are powers at work behind the powers we know, remember what it says in Ephesians 6:12 "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms." If you study the bible, it will become clearer.


And by the way, if you are a scoffer, this too was prophesied to occur in the last days. See 2 Peter 3:3.


Thank you and God Bless you!

Dear Mr Remmish,

Congrats for your marriage. I wish you succesfull marriage life ahead.

Going through your blog and marriage photographs i concluded that your post here is inspired by your "Congress Prem" or "Jogi's Closeness" factor.

If you write your expressions being a neutralist; the weightage of your words become more powerful.

There are many projects governed by Congress and Mayavati are named on their old leaders. so there in nothing wrong on this.

I appreciate your career graph and responsibilities towards telecom industry. I find it good when corporates interfears in indian politics. Nations needs youth force like us or Amit Jogi or milind deora or Varun Gandhi or Akhilesh Yadav.

If you will focus on writing blogs with neutral view, definitely it would be some fruitful and useful stuff for readers.

I also appreciate your quiality of accepting critics, coz i saw many comments are not in favor of you but you did not delete.(except one, i understand that it might contain some dangerous stuff...)

I appologize for my words, but no hard feelings for anyone. its purely my feelings.

Thanks and eager to hear from you.
