The Ambassador of France to India, H.E. Alexandre Ziegler, along with the Counsellor for Cooperation and Cultural Affairs, Dr. Bertrand de Hartingh announced the opening of Bonjour India 2017-18, a four-month-long voyage across India.

Speaking on the launch, Ambassador Alexandre Ziegler said, 
Bonjour India is a key event of the historical Indo-French relations of friendship and trust, which have grown in scope and exchanges over the last few years. In an increasingly interconnected and interdependent world, the efforts we make to address common challenges facing humanity must be done collectively. The third edition thus focuses on partnership, innovation and creativity, and is oriented in good measure towards the youth, for they renew and perpetuate our ties. Nothing can better uphold and create enduring relations than strengthening the partnership of hearts between our peoples.

Celebrating Indo-French partnership, it will shape the next decade of people-to-people contacts between the two countries. From November 2017 to February 2018, Bonjour India will cover a 100 programmes and projects in 33 cities across 20 states and union territories. Showcasing Indo-French expertise in innovation, education, research, science and technology, art and culture, this platform will enable and trigger further collaborations by bringing the best of India and France together.

Commenting about the new edition, Dr. Bertrand de Hartingh said, 
Bonjour India is for everyone: it provides access to all and invites everyone to make it their own. Bonjour India is an invitation to reimagine our world with the common threads that unite us, to take forward what we have inherited and build our future together with our minds, our hearts and our hands. We look forward to a successful voyage and fruitful collaborations, bringing value to the lives of the citizens of both the countries.

Crime Patrol देख कर एक तरफ़ा प्यार करने वाले मजनू ने की छात्रा की हत्या

Sony TV पर Crime Patrol और Life Ok पर Savdhan India दो ऐसे शो है जो दर्शको को अपराध और अपराधियों से सतर्क करने का दावा करते है, लेकिन हालही में राजस्थान के बांसवाड़ा जिले में हुए छात्रा के हत्या कांड के खुलासे ने इन चैनेलो के दावों को ना सिर्फ झुठलाया है बल्कि आपराधिक गतिविधियों को बढ़ावा देने के लिए जिम्मेदार भी ठहराया है.

दरअसल राजस्थान के बांसवाड़ा जिले का है जहाँ एक छात्रा की हत्या से सनसनी फ़ैल गयी थी. मामला एक तरफ़ा प्यार का था, जहाँ लड़का लड़की से प्यार करता था. जब लड़की ने प्रेम का प्रस्ताव ठुकरा दिया तो लड़के ने Crime Patrol से प्रेरित हो कर अपने जन्म दिन के बहाने एक आखरी बार मिलने बुलाया था, लड़की जब मिलने पहुंची तो उसकी हत्या कर दी गयी.

अपराधी को गिरफ्तार कर लिया गया और उसने अपना ज़ुर्म भी कबूल कर लिया है, पुलिस कार्यवाही भी कर रही है. लेकिन अब सवाल ये उठता है कि आज हम २१ वीं सदी में होने के बावजूद भी देश में ऐसा माहौल बनाने में विफल रहे है जहाँ महिलाओ को एक सुरक्षित वातावरण मिल सके. महज़ किसी सीरियल या फ़िल्म से प्रेरित हो कर युवा इस तरह की घटनाओ को अंजाम दे रहे है तो इसका मतलब ये है …
