Celebrating freedom amid loss of ideals

Even at the moment of celebration, a nation needs to look at itself — not just its success stories, but also its failures, contradictions and paradoxes. The art of a reflexive quest is important, particularly at a time when the culture of narcissism tends to reproduce itself through media simulations, self-advertisement and a fairly developed propaganda machinery.

Spending time in nature may improve well being

Feeling low? Try hiking or spending time outdoors, say scientists who have found that engaging with natural environment contributes to a person's overall well-being.

Researchers, including those from Oregon State University (OSU) in the US, analysed results from more than 4,400 respondents to an online survey.

They used about 13 different metrics to illustrate the relationship between overall life satisfaction and engaging with the natural environment.

Among those metrics were community activities, access to wild resources, stress eased by time outdoors, and trust in policymakers.

Researchers found that 11 of the 13 had a positive correlation to overall life satisfaction.

They quantified the relationship between well-being and six common mechanisms by which nature affects well-being: social and cultural events, trust in governance, access to local wild resources, sense of place, outdoor recreation, and psychological benefits from time outdoors.

"The links between ecological conditions, like drinking water and air quality, and objective well-being have been studied quite a bit," said Kelly Biedenweg of OSU.

"However, the connection between various aspects of engaging the natural environment and overall subjective well- being have rarely been looked at," Biedenweg said.

"We wanted to identify the relative importance of diverse, nature-oriented experiences on a person's overall life satisfaction assessment and statistically prove the relationship between happiness/life satisfaction and engaging with nature in many different ways," she said.

"Whether people feel like things are fair and they have a voice in process of making decisions and whether governance is transparent - those are the foundations of why people even can interact with nature," she said.

"The fact that trust in governance was a significant predictor of life satisfaction – in fact, the most statistically significant predictor of the ones we looked at – it was nice to see that come out of the research. The way we manage is the gateway to people being able to get livelihoods and satisfaction from nature," Biedenweg said.

The study was published in the Journal of Environmental Psychology.

Son Of Somnath Chatterjee Says Biman-Surya To Leave House

Kolkata, Aug 13,2018: Demise of Somnath Chtterjee has shattered the family as well the nation. Pratap Chatterjee, son of senior Chatterjee unfolded that past is still living alive.

The body of Somnath Chatterjee has been brought to his house at Raja Basant Roy Road where Sitaram Yechury, Secretary General of the Communist Party of India has come to pay his last salute to the ‘Unrecognised Comrade’. Interacting to Yechury, Pratap Chatterjee has expressed displeasure saying, “They have only exploited my father throughout his involvement, now showing courtesy which i won’t tolerate.”

Pratap Chatterjee has shouted when father’s body lying for the last rite. The voice mixed with annoyance and pain said in front of Sitaram Yechury, ” I told them to leave, instructed police so that nobody can enter, I don’t wanna see them within 300 meter.”

Many questions are coming out od his behaviour. Politbereau has responded after 5 hours after his demise. Pratap Chatterjee sahrply said that, “Sitaram Yechury is heartily welcome but Biman Basu and Suryakanta can leave.” The family said Somnath Chatterjee kept safe distance with CPIM. But he was wise enough to maintain the line of personal relationship and party related issues and ideological differences. So, Sitaram Yechury was standing in a safe zone.

The situatiuon started to gain its conmplexity with the growing time. The lagislature member of CPIM Sujan Chakraborty tried to control the damages. Amidst so many turmoil Suryakanta Mishra and Biman Basu paid their last tribute. Biman Basu known as the angry young man of Alimuddin expressed a cold-loaded reply on this. He said, he is heavy-hearted as he lost his father. On the other hand he added, Somnath Chatterjee didn’t like his son Pratap Chatterjee at all.

So, CPIM has again came with their double standered attitude. Still carrying the old damage controlling mindset to get into something almost forcefully. An old practice and attitude close to ‘autocracy’.
