  • Ram temple a symbol of self-respect: VHP

    first_imgThe Ram Janmabhoomi temple in Ayodhya is a symbol of Hindu religious sentiments and self-respect, Vishwa Hindu Parishad secretary general Milind Parande has said.Speaking to the media in the city on Sunday, Mr. Parande termed the Supreme Court verdict on the Ayodhya title suit as “the victory of truth” and a result of the struggle and sacrifices made by lakhs of Hindus. “As the Supreme Court has asked the Central government to organise a trust for the construction of the temple, we hope that the government soon takes steps for it,” he said.The VHP secretary general also took on the Kerala government on the Sabarimala temple controversy, saying it is the intent of the ruling party to hurt the religious sentiments of Hindu devotees.“The VHP does not worry about being a part of the trust committee, but we believe that the construction [of the Ram temple] should be done according to the wishes of Hindu society… The temple should be constructed with the money of Hindu society as it’s the Hindu society’s temple, and it should not become a government temple,” Mr. Parande said.Given that the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) has decided to file a review petition against the Ayodhya verdict, Mr. Parande said it was their right to file a review petition, although the decision of Supreme Court was very balanced. “They had the time in the 40-day hearings to prove that the disputed land had a Muslim graveyard or it was an empty land, but they failed to prove it.” He said if the AIMPLB thought the demolition of the Babri mosque was illegal, it should also think of the temple at that site, which he claimed was demolished before the mosque.Mr. Parande said neither the VHP nor the Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas had asked for any donations for the temple construction in the recent times, and warned people not to believe in rumours.Hee also accused the Communist Party of Kerala of hurting religious feelings of Hindu devotees by trying to portray the Sabarimala temple issue as one of discrimination towards women.The VHP secretary general also accused the Kerala government and Christian missionaries of wanting to hurt the religious sentiments of Hindus, for which, they are using the Sabarimala issue. Mr. Parande was in Mumbai to attend an annual function of a home for cancer patients managed by the VHP.last_img read more

  • I consulted a sports psychologist after Rio Olympic failure: Mirabai Chanu

    first_imgMirabai Chanu has been a world champion and won the gold medal in the Commonwealth Games 2018 (CWG) at Gold Coast, which was a first yellow metal for India in the event this year.Chanu’s best lift in Snatch was 86kg while in Clean and Jerk, she lifted a best of 110kg and bagged the gold medal with a total of 196kg. Chanu was a class apart in Gold Coast but there was a journey Chanu made in order to achieve that high this year.She converted her 2014 Commonwealth Games silver into a gold four years later but had a big roadblock in the middle at Rio Olympics 2016, something that she had work hard to overcome.”I first won silver at the Commonwealth Games 2014 and then I started knowing how and what to do to get better. I worked extremely hard and qualified for the Olympics but then it was my first Olympics and I got really nervous because of which I missed out on a medal.”I got very disappointed and really low at that point but then my mother and my coach, they explained me a lot and then corrected my technique and worked even harder. Because of all that I could go back to CWG and win a gold medal,” Chanu told indiatoday.in.Chanu spoke at length about the mental aspect of a sport like weightlifting and conceded that she felt the need to take help from a sports psychologist in order to overcome the nerves and low of the Olympics.advertisementShe had worked extremely hard for the Olympics, qualified for the event and then let her nerves get the better of her. That is what Chanu said she avoids now and credited the sessions she had with the psychologist for the same.”Earlier I didn’t know much about it [sports psychology] but then I did take help and the difference showed in my performance. I could focus more on my training and technique as well and things got a lot better. I had sessions and all, talked about various things and my performance got better too,” Chanu elaborated.”It’s upto every player as to how they go about a psychologist. You know how we maintain our power and how we work on the various aspects of the sport, we have to consult a psychologist regularly for that.”Chanu went on to say that a psychologist may even make a weightlifter feel more powerful during a performance, courtesy the mental aspect of the sport that had been worked upon.”The mentality in weightlifting is very important and it can get problematic if we don’t work on it along with working on the sport. When we go to lift a weight and if that time we are thinking about something else or are under pressure, we fail. So working on the mental part is extremely important.”Chanu shared a little about her journey from a small place in Manipur to the world stage, where she has been a bright star for India. Chanu said she felt lucky to have a family who is very fond of sports.”I come from a very small place in Manipur and initially I didn’t even know what weightlifting but then seeing people I got inspired. Also, I am very lucky that my family is very fond of sports and I received a lot of support. Then I started practicing and got into it and this is all my hard work. I would keep working hard till I achieve what I want to.”Chanu said she focusses on smaller aims and takes one tournament at a time. She had the Asian Championships coming up next and had all her focus on that.”I’m working more and more on my technique. I want to be better than what I am and for that, my focus lies with bettering my craft.”Also Read | Mirabai Chanu’s parents overwhelmed by their daughter’s successSee Photos | Mirabai Chanu, Virat Kohli receive Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna AwardAlso Watch | Exclusive: Hima Das keen to inspire Gen Nextlast_img read more
