RANIA (SIRSA) Haryana Chief Minister, Mr Manohar Lal Khattar today said that with a view to address the problem of stubble burning, the State Government has invited various companies to set up their industries in the field of power generation and paper production in the affected areas in the State. He announced that a paper mill based on stubble would be set up in Rania in Public Private Partnership Mode (PPP).
Mr Manohar Lal who was addressing a Vikas Rally in Rania today also announced various development works of Rs 150 crore for area.
The Chief Minister said that power companies who would opt to set up their units would be provided every assistance by the State Government such as land, exemption in tax and license fees etc. Apart from this, the government would also bear the loss of these companies in case the electricity generated by them is not fully consumed. The setting up these industries would not only help in generating electricity but also get rid off the affected areas from the problem of stubble burning and provide employment to youth, he added.
He said that he had a long association with the people of this area as he has been visiting Rania for the last 26 years. He said that 26 months earlier, when he took over the reign of the administration of the State, he had decided to visit all 90 assembly constituencies in the year 2015 and 2016 to meet the demand of the people by announcing various development projects and it is matter of pleasure that on December 25, 2016 he is going to complete his tour of all assembly constituencies in the State. He said that before him, none of the nine Chief Ministers visited all assembly segments in their first two years. We came into power with a sole aim to serve the entire 2.50 crore population of the State and also announced various development projects in those assembly constituencies also which are not being represented by BJP MLAs he added. He said that political will of the government and budget is required to serve the people adding that there is no dearth of funds with the State government for development works. He assured that the announcements made by him upto December 25, 2016 would be completed in the next year.
While lashing out the opposition without naming anyone, the Chief Minister said that we have given jobs to youth on merit basis and not through the back-door entry. Moreover, we never accepted slip (Parchi) or nor let this system flourishing in the State unlike the previous governments where a Chief Minister was behind the bars for giving jobs on basis of slips. ‘We will not commit any wrong act’, he added. He said that usually a government employee serves the state government for 30 to 35 years and we would select only those eligible youth for jobs who would serve the people and not become a burden on them.
He also blamed the previous government for not filling the vacant posts and said that we have started recruitment process for 50,000 posts in various departments.

Apart from this, Vishwakarma University for Skill Development has also been set up in Pawal in which various short-term courses would be introduced to make youth employable. He said that the State Government has also started a scheme for post graduate unemployed youth under which they were being given monthly honorarium of Rs 9000. The scope of this scheme will soon be expanded by covering graduate unemployed youth so as to make them self-reliant.
While taking a dig at the previous government for weakened the education system in the State, the Chief Minister described the ten year rule of the previous government as a black chapter in the field of education. He said that we have reintroduced the monthly exam system in schools and also taken various other initiatives to bring about improvement in education system.The Chief Minister said that the government is laying special emphasis on strengthening of infrastructure in the State. New roads were being constructed wherever required and damaged roads were being repaired. He said that a new policy of express way (Mahamarg) has been prepared. A new express way is being constructed from Delhi to Amritsar via Rohtak–Jind and other districts through which the travel between Delhi and Amritsar would be covered in just five hours. He said that as promised, the National Highway-10 from Hisar to Dabwali has been completed in one year time and as a result of this the travel time has reduced to just one hour. He said that a network of NH is being laid in the State which would not only ensure overall development of the State but also provide employment opportunities to the youth as more industries would come up. He also described Haryana as favourite destination for entrepreneurs to set up their units and added that various leading companies have offered to invest to the tune of Rs seven lakh crore in the State which would also provide employment opportunities to five lakh youth. He said that the Haryana which was earlier at 14th position in terms of ease of doing business now reached at number one position.
While hailing the step of Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi regarding demonetizing of high currency notes, the Chief Minister said that recently Venezuela followed India into National Demonetization but could not sustained with the decision.

Talents of Wisdom
Wisdom is the ability to think and act on using knowledge, observations, mental assumptions and experience. It also depicts the quality of an individual to perform with righteous judgment, intelligence and additional faculty. According to Oxford dictionary, Wisdom is the capacity of just going rightly in matters relating to life and conduct, soundness of judgment in the choice of means and in practical affairs opposite to folly. The psychologists suggest that wisdom involves a combination of knowledge, deep understanding and even tolerance for the uncertainties (ups and downs) of life. It brings good awareness and sense of balance. The concept of sapience is derived from a word of Latin language ‘Sapienta’ which means Wisdom. A few more synonyms related to wisdom are, sagacity, intelligence, perception, acuity, discernment, prudence, circumspection, perspicuity, insight etc. Knowing yourself is the beginning of wisdom.
Knowledge and Wisdom:
1. Knowledge is mainly perceived through study, observation and investigation. The ability acquire knowledge effectively helps to enhance the status of wisdom because it is utilized in practical and productive manner. Both are inter-linked, as the qualities of wisdom become exponential due to practical applications of knowledge. Although, knowledge is mostly generated from external sources of books, teaching, computers, video, pictures etc., but wisdom can be mainly determined through internal sources of introspective thoughts, analysis, resolutions and repeated judgments.
2. Wisdom perceives clearly with righteous thinking to apply the correct and lasting schemes of knowledge for progress and prosperity of life.
3. If certain aspects of knowledge can help in earning, spending and saving money, wisdom can manage its impacts on the quality and future of life.
4. Knowledge provides means to seek pleasure and happiness. Wisdom explains that true delight is not obtained from things or situations but it comes from within.
5. Knowledge is information and confident understanding of a subject with the ability to use it for a specific purpose. Wisdom is quality to make righteous judgment and decision gained through repeated experiences in life.
6. Wisdom governs choice and chase of knowledge, communication and affinity. It is also related to introspection, ‘who we are and what we do’?
7. Wisdom defines and refines our character in addition to learning, reflection and logical thoughts.
Attempts to Acquire Wisdom:
The wisdom comes from personal experience that makes the mind vibrant. The information gained from books or simple learning counts little, unless it is supplemented with long and variable observation, serious thinking and proper evidences. Wisdom is essential for people of every section belonging various disciplines, men and women, businessmen, officials, lawyers, teachers, players, coaches, medical experts and many more.
v Traditionally, the teachers take the responsibility to build the character and wisdom.
v The parents and eminent persons of community tend to share their experiences and skills.
v Learn through quality literature which is in addition to specified books prescribed for syllabi.
v Visit places of historical importance.
v Attend seminars and debates on substantial topics organized by prominent institutions.
v Try to establish links with talented and experienced officials.
v There is misconception that wisdom can be acquired lot of experience in aged persons. Actually wisdom emerges from thoughtful reflection on learning, gained from deep and varied personal observations. For instance, intelligent persons secure success in competitive examinations of high status (IAS, IPS, IRS, IFS in India) at the age of about 28-years. Likewise, the master degree of medicine, law, engineering, administration etc. can be achieved at this age. Therefore, the exact connection between age and wisdom should not be doubtful. Do not wait until you are old beyond 55-years.
v Advance your own objectives but also search ways and means to benefit others. There is no doubt that wise person’s offer good advice to others and make better choices themselves.
v Analyze the existing regulations instead of accepting as these have always been. Try to explore better path through practical experience.
v Concentrate more on positive aims and objectives along with pleasure.
v We can gain knowledge from our teachers to do the best in our life but wisdom is not a product of schooling but of a lifelong attempt to acquire it.
v We are made wise not only through recollection of our past, but the responsibility for our future.
v According to the philosophical concept of Confucius, we may learn wisdom, first by reflection which is noblest; second by imitation which is easiest; third by experience which is bitterest.
The views of Insight:
The insight denotes the ability to clearly perceive deep qualities of mind (thoughts and actions).it is the deeper perception of life, knowledge and wisdom. According to Hindu religion, wisdom reflects the state of mind and soul where a person achieves liberation. Many worship ‘Ganesh Ji’ as god and ‘Sarswati’ as goddess of knowledge. They believe that ‘truth’ is the basis of all creations. In other words, a person with self awareness is wise, who witnesses the total creation in all its facts and forms. The people realize through righteous behavior and peaceful living with delight, their true relations and benevolence with the sole creator ‘Divine Lord’. Do not always believe in conversion rather concentrate on inversion.
Benefits of Wisdom:
· An ounce of wisdom is better than tons of knowledge.
· Wisdom is the disposition to decide about the righteous actions for any task.
· It improves the qualities of knowledge through good judgment and experience.
· It confirms the basis of sensible and wise thinking developed within a specified society or period.
· Gain confidence and social status.
· Wisdom reflects the state of purity and peace of mind.
· Virtues appear from good deeds and wisdom from a pure and peaceful mind. One requires the light of wisdom and guidance of virtue to lead a safe and happy living.
The Real Talent :
Knowledge is familiarity, awareness or understanding of someone or something such as facts, information, description or skills which are acquired through education, experience, perceiving, learning or discovery. It can be theoretical or practical understanding of any subject. Whereas, according to Adiana Koulias, wisdom can be acquired with the eyes of faith, we come to recognize the drop of divinity residing in our own souls through hidden master. Conceit is self given, be careful; fame is man given, be grateful; talent is God given, be humble.
There is neither eternal misery nor happiness in the world. He who has left the deepest grief is best able experience supreme happiness. Until the day the God will design to bless the fortune to man, the human wisdom is contained in hard work, wait and hope. The Divine power does not seem to look over diplomas, degrees or medals but for the virtuous qualities of humanity and submission to meditation. Let us pray, to grant us the serenity to accept the things we cannot change, courage to change the things we can and wisdom to realize the difference.
