Sahajanand imbroglio resolved Saturday, July 28, 2001

By Our Correspondent, AsianAge
Ahmedabad, July 27: The crisis at Shri Sahajanand Arts and Commerce College finally ended on Friday with principal M.H. Patel seeking apology from teachers and students concerned.

The friction between Mr Patel and four teachers turned violent on Tuesday when the former reportedly manhandled some of the students, who had approached him to discuss the problem of overcrowding of first year of B.Com classes.

The college that had closed down due to the strike declared by students since Tuesday would restart on Saturday. The protesting students were holding a mock besna of Mr Patel on Friday morning when he asked them to call off the strike.

“When the students demanded that he must seek forgiveness of the two students he had abused on Tuesday, he agreed to it,” informed member of Gujarat University Welfare Board Habib Shaikh. “Students even pressed the demand that he apologised before four college teachers, D.G. Goyal, H. D. Prajapati, R.R. Shah and R.R. Gothi, who were abused by Mr Patel on Tuesday,” he added. While Mr Patel sorted out the matter in the morning, he even issued a written apology. Mr Patel was, however, unavailable for his comment.

Nadiad jail inmates allowed to observe Shravan fast Saturday, July 28, 2001

THE TIMES OF INDIA NEWS SERVICE
NADIAD: A humanitarian gesture of acting district jail superintendent K D Baria! He permitted 79 inmates to observe nakorda upvas (fast observed by taking farar twice a day with no meal) and 43 prisoners, including five women to observe fast by taking farar in the morning and meal in the evening in view of Shravan.
Following prisoners' request to be allowed to observe fast during Shravan, Baria sought permission from state jail authority and allowed local religious institution `Puneshavar Mahadev' of Shri Nityanandaji Maharaj to provide free milk and banana to such prisoners daily. This correspondent who visited the jail on Thursday was told by 45-year-old prisoner Arvind Gohil said the aim of observing fast is to get peace of mind as well as to repent for their sins. This fast brings spiritual uplift, he added. Bharat Parmar (33) said it is humanitarian gesture of the in-charge superintendent Baria who promoted communal harmony and human values among prisoners. In fact, Baria has been continuing constructive and humanitarian steps introduced by his predecessor N B Shekh, jail superintendent, who was transferred in June to Surat. Shekha had won the heart of not only prisoners but others, too, from all communities for fostering communal harmony during his tenure for two years.
According to Baria as per jail norms prisoners are allowed to fast during Shravan. Accordingly for those 79 inmates observing Nakorda upvas they are given in the morning 150 gram milk and two banana daily and the evening farar comprises 400 gm fry potato, 150 gm groundnut, 50 gm chevda and 200 gm milk and 200 gm gur. Shri Nityanandaji Maharaj is offering banana and milk daily to prisoners bearing cost of Rs. 1,100 for free distribution, added Baria. However, the prisoners are given meal and farar like gur, ground nut, milk and chevda as per jail norms from its own funds. Another special feature of Shravan is that prisoners have been offering 51,000 leaves of tulsi daily to Santram temple. All inmates jointly tulsi (sacred basil) from jail nursery.
The prisoners were also involved in nursery activities during `Narmada Vruksha Utsava' and planted 22,000 saplings in the jail nursery. Free distribution of tulsi sapling packed in plastic bags numbering 5000 was done to Puneshvar Mahadev and Jalaram temple and 500 were given to Santram temple from where devotees get it free, added Baria.
