दिनाङ्क – 31 मार्च, 2018, शनिवार,

स्थान –सेमिनार हाल, सनातन धर्म कालेज, अम्बाला छावनी । अकादमिक समर्थन– सनातन धर्म आदर्श संस्कृत कालेज, अम्बाला छावनी । हिन्दू कालेज, अमृतसर । डी०ए०वी० कालेज, पिहोवा । महाराजा अग्रसेन कालेज, जगाधरी । इन्दिरा गाँधी नेशनल कालेज, लाडवा । डी०ए०वी० कालेज, नन्योला । राष्ट्रभाषा विचार मञ्च, अम्बाला । नेशनल अवेयरनेस फ़ोरम, अम्बाला । आयोजक विभाग – संस्कृत, हिन्दी, पञ्जाबी, इतिहास, संगीत ( गायन, वादन), मास कम्युनिकेशन, एन०सी०सी० मान्यवर, उपर्युक्त विषय पर सम्वाद करने के लिए आप अपने विचार, मान्यता एवम् दृष्टि सहित सादर आमन्त्रित हैं।

भारतीय इतिहास, परम्परा, संस्कृति और साहित्य में बैरागी सम्प्रदाय को जो स्थान मिलना अपेक्षित था वह उसे नहीं मिला है और न ही दिया गया है। विशेष रूप से पञ्जाब, हरियाणा, राजस्थान, उत्तरप्रदेश के प्रादेशिक इतिहासों में बैरागी सम्प्रदाय को न्यायोचित स्थान दिया जाना चाहिए था, वह नहीं दिया गया। उनके योगदान की चर्चा प्रादेशिक इतिहासकार क्यों नहीं कर रहे – यह प्रश्न अवश्य उनसे किया जाना चाहिए । पञ्जाब , हरियाणा, राजस्थान, उत्तरप्रदेश आदि में बैरागी मठों, अखाड़ों आदि भूमिका कितनी महत्त्वपूर्ण रही है – यह बैरागियों के द्वारा किए गए बलिदानों एवम् सामाजिक कार्यों से मूल्यांकित अवश्य किया जाना चाहिए। बैरागी सम्प्रदाय की विशिष्टता इस तथ्य में भी निहित है कि वे पहले ऐसे लोग हैं जिन्होने भक्ति के साथ शक्ति का समन्वयन किया और “सन्यासी- योद्धा” या “सन्त-सिपाही” को मूर्त रूप प्रदान किया। राम को केन्द्र में प्रतिष्ठित करके हनुमान के बल से प्रेरणा ले कर जो बैरागी दर्शन की अवधारणा को स्थापित कर तदनुकूल व्यवहार का प्रदर्शन किया, वह सराहनीय है और उसने परवर्ती भक्ति-दर्शनों को न केवल प्रभावित ही किया बल्कि उनकी सशक्त पृष्ठभूमि भी तैयार की। इसलिए इस संगोष्ठी का आयोजन अपने औचित्य को स्वयं सिद्ध करता है। यह संसार अपनी विषमताओं के कारण एक विचित्र परिदृश्य बना रहा है। इसमें कोई सबल है तो कोई निर्बल है । इसका कारण अभी तक अज्ञात है। प्रकृति के क्षेत्र में तो यही समाधान है कि निर्बल सबल का भोजन बनने के लिए ही उत्पन्न हुआ है। मनुष्यता के क्षेत्र में कर्मों का शुभ-अशुभ होना ही इस विषमता का कारण है। वैष्णव भक्ति के सन्दर्भ में भगवद्भाव की विस्मृति ही इसका मूल कारण है। वैष्णव भक्ति ने इस विस्मृति को ध्रुवा या अटल स्मृति के द्वारा निवारण कर लोक में धर्मस्थापना का व्रत धारा कर सबल और निर्बल के द्वन्द्व का न्यायसंगत समाधान पहली बार वाल्मीकि रामायण में, दूसरी बार रामचरितमानस में उपस्थापित किया । प्रश्न दूसरी बार भी वही था कि- “जब-जब होई धर्म की हानि । बाढ़ई अधम असुर अभिमानी” तब ऐसी स्थिति में भगवान् स्वयम् अवतरित होने से पूर्व अपनी धर्मरूपता का समावेश अपने भक्तजन में समाविष्ट कर देते हैं। भारतीय इतिहास की मध्यकालीन धर्मसाधना में यही समावेश जगद्गुरू रामानन्दाचार्य में अवतरित होकर वैरागी बाबाओं के रूप में सारे भारत में फैल गया । “लक्ष्य एक ही था सबल का अहंकार टूटे और निर्बल की कायरता”। इस नूतन दृष्टि के प्रसार का कारण राम-कथा का वह सूत्र था जो पहले से ही भारतीय लोकचेतना के मानस में अनुप्रविष्ट था। वह धागा इतना विस्तृत था जो भारत की सारी पुरातन धर्म-साधनाओं के सारांश ग्रहण के साथ-साथ वर्तमान की अपेक्षाओं के अनुकूल भी था। यही कारण था कि दक्षिण से लेकर संपूर्ण भारत में जो राष्ट्र के नवजागरण का आन्दोलन छिड़ गया वह वैष्णव भक्ति के अन्य संप्रदायों से इस दृष्टि से भिन्न था कि उसमें असहाय दीनता का भगवद्भक्ति में स्थान बहुत कम हो गया और महावीर मारुति की सहृदयताजन्य दीनता और करुणा का महत्त्व अधिक हो गया । इन्हीं कारणों से रामावत-वैष्णव भक्ति ने पश्चिमी भारत में शिवाजी को, पंजाब में सिख-परम्परा के जुझारु संघर्ष को और गुजरात में गांधीवादी रामराज्य के आदर्श को जन्म दिया जो सारे भारत-जन का गौरव बन गए । इन सभी पूर्वोक्त आन्दोलनों की समूची मानसिकता का तात्त्विक विश्लेषण करें तो सर्वत्र रामानन्दी वैरागी को पीछे खड़ा पाएंगें । अपने समाज के अन्तर्वर्ती संघर्ष में जातिवाद के मिथ्या अंहकार से जूझता हुआ वैरागी वैष्णव सत्तामद से पगलाए बादशाहों, रजवाड़ो और विदेशी शासकों के अत्याचार, अनाचार का सबसे अधिक मुखर विरोध करता हुआ दृष्टिगत होता है- इसका पता पाने के लिए इतिहास की वर्तमान प्रणाली से परे हटकर देखने की आवश्यकता है।

Dear Sir/Ma’am,

Greetings!!

Jims Engineering Management Technical Campus (JMTEC)- School of Law , Greater Noida is conducting a One Day National Conference on ‘Emerging Trends in International Law: Issues & Challenges‘ on 21st April 2018, at JIMS Engineering Management Technical Campus (JMTEC)-School of Law and seeks your participation in this intellectual endeavour.

About The Conference:

International Law seeks to achieve peaceful and sustainable coexistence worldwide. However, the attainment of peace and tranquility in the present scenario is a serious global challenge. We need to rethink about the current International Law, its institutional and normative structure, functions and their shortcomings.

Progressive development and codification of International Law has developed international entities like States, Trans border Organisations, Multinational Corporations that are paving way for globalization and easy accessibility across the globe.

It is a known fact that none of the nations can survive in seclusion and there is an obligation to establish a well knitted inter-state relationship. There is a constant strife between new international economic order and traditional interpretation of international principles.

Establishment of United Nations has also segregated bi-polar world into a non-aligned globe for protecting the future generations. International Law is blamed to favour developed nations rather than LDCs or the third world countries. In modern age of technological advancement and rise of new treaty based International Law from its traditional customary nature, the discipline has posed many challenges like:

  • Identification of Customary International Law.
  • Fragmentation of International Law.
  • Issues related to Private International Law.
  • Rise of Non-State Actors and increase in International Humanitarian Crisis, International Refugee Crisis.

FACULTY DEVELOPMENT CENTRE (Human Resource Development Centre, UGC) Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar

Organizing a National Seminar on

“Contemporary Challenges to Social Sciences”

March 28–30, 2018

Introduction:

The contemporary phase of production and distribution of knowledge at international level in general and in India in particular is characterized by marginalization of social sciences and strong emphasis on the ability of science and technology to handle the issues concerning society is creating a variety of challenges. There is emerging an optimism of intelligence that the acquisition of knowledge is possible without human agency. Thus, on- line internet access to different knowledge sources and other e-learning processes are assumed to be sufficient enough as an alternative to classroom teaching in which teacher- taught interaction which contributes to the acquisition and creation of knowledge. Under such circumstances where education is progressively regarded as a capitalist enterprise and knowledge as commodity, the old paradigm of classroom teaching and research are taking back stage. It is in this context this seminar seeks to identify how these challenges can be handled by the higher institutes of learning by interrogating theory, research and practice of social sciences in India.

Objectives:

The Seminar proceedings would deliberate on the following issues:

  •   Paradoxes of contemporary social science education
  •   Challenges for social sciences
  •   Social science interdisciplinary research
  •   Social science comparative studies
  •   Evolving Research methodologies
  •   Innovative courses in social sciences
  •   Role of State

    There would be eight sessions in all including inaugural and valedictory sessions. The participants are invited from all disciplines of social sciences. There is no registration fee for this Workshop. Detailed Programme will be circulated shortly.
    (Travelling allowance will be reimbursed only to those teachers whose University/College/Institute comes under the purview of Section 2(f) and 12B of the UGC Act)
