28th July:
A week to look back:
The last week has been a week of review for Jalgaon. The city witnessed many new changes and Upgradation in itself. The key fact includes new laws regarding Cyber café in entire state. Most of the cyber owners are in confusion about what exactly the law is and how to fulfil it? The week witnessed formation of a new 'Cyber union' in Jalgaon to consider and help Cyberwalas in such issues. This start is one of the significant changes in cyber policies of the city. Many major reforms needed including formation of strict code of ethics for cyber centres will be hopefully implemented.
Another major issue this week was "Traffic of the city". The city police have issued hundreds of memos to people driving badly and not following rules of the traffic. Does it mean we do not have traffic sense? Surely not! Every city and people needs step-by-step intro of following traffic or any rule. Why not social organisations like Rotary, Rotaract and Lions take active part in informing people, what traffic law is and how to drive safely? It will be of great help to people in city specially Jalgaon where major roads are good enough but linking roads are very narrow and are in bad condition. Does only issuing people with memos and giving big newspaper headlines make people aware of traffic laws?
This week was also an important one for students for their academic admissions. This year many graduation results were announced late, so many students were in dilemma of where to take admission and what to do next? As a safe side, many of them had taken admission in Jalgaon as well as many other Universities around. But as results came out more than 20-30% seats from the NMU admission were vacant simply for the reason that the students preferred other universities rather than ours. NMU this week announced Second notice for Entrance to many courses including some quota seats.
Another important view this week has been students protest march to NMU to allow carry-on. Are we not enough compatible to pass to next year? We must think of what fault our education system has that we are asking our University to allow us carry-on? Are our colleges and teaching faculties not cultivating us with education? Be prepared, get ready, go ahead. We have many challenges to face in life as well as when we go out for jobs. If we ask carry-on here, what we will ask in our life when we find ourselves in difficulties? Will GOD give carry-on to our lives? Certainly not, we must gear up our mentality to face this new era. We must protest for what wrong is happening? We must protest for if we are not being educated properly? We must protest if entire class is being failed for any particular subject?
Gear up my friend, its new century. We can fight the challenges only if we have strong enough foundation of knowledge and education. After all college education is just an experimental base, we have to give many exams in our life.

Time for AGM:
July end and August begin is being marked as a time for Co-operative societies, Banks and other trusts Annual General meeting (AGM) in Jalgaon. Since last 2-3 days each and every society is gearing for its AGM and preparation thereof.
This year AGM will be viewed as a significant year for policy change of the co-op banking area. As the city is changing and business is growing, demands of business houses are also increasing day by day. Until now most of the co-op banks were surviving on DD commission and savings. But now the time has changed.
International standard banks are knocking Jalgaon doors. They are all set to give a big change in how business banking is done and as they succeed in this, the co-operative banks and societies income will fall significantly. Their savings will drop just like share market dropped in some older days.
This year AGM should be marked as very important AGM for deciding what future the co-operative movement holds? What should be the new business policy of them? What number of facilities they are providing to their valued customers? How they are treating their bread-owner? Until now most of the banks even don't have Internet connection, thinking of going online or providing bank statements to the customers online will just be a dream for them at this stage.

Private Buses: Luxury or harassment?
Since many years we are seeing Private buses operating in the district area to provide commuters with options to travel in with less time as compared to government services. But since their startup the so-called Private luxury buses are day by day becoming harassment due to government's no support tendency.
A Government is always supposed to provide with base for youth's employment and make favorable movements in that regards. Instead of snatching private operators back, government should provide up with a competitive platform for government run ST buses. We mean government should make 2 simultaneous platforms for ST as well as private buses. The commuter, whom he feels comfortable, will select the choice as per his needs. Second alternative to this issue is in hands of private operators. They should make their own private bus stand as we see in MP and other states and run the buses from those points.
But scene is reverse, if you go to luxury bus stands now a days, you will not be able to step up in buses due to the fact that the area where private buses stands is totally mud-covered due to recent raining. Even there is heavy congestion while dropping people or moving the buses.
What is common feeling is that no one is taking proper care of providing up customer facilities, every one is just interested in filling his pockets. Filling pocket is OK, but why not we think of providing customer facilities?

Asoda is one of the worst hit water problem areas of Jalgaon. Even though it is considered as an extension of Jalgaon city, no consideration has been given to resolve the issue until now. Since many years Asoda has no regular drinking water supply. Most of the families have to depend on the well or bore water.
Since last 25 days there is no water supply in the entire Asoda. People are fighting with each other for getting maximum water for their families. If no consideration is given to this Asoda issue, this village will cut down from the Jalgaon district map.

16th July:
We need Railway Discipline:
Since this year beginning Jalgaon has reported more than 5 accidents on railway platforms. Does it means Jalgaon is lacking railway discipline? If we think in deep, YES we need new measure to tackle such issues.
Many of our young generation friends always make hurry on stations while dropping from railway or stepping on railway coaches. Some of dashing friends also stand on corners on coach gates, which is also a risky reason. Its our duty to reach on time on platform, in-fact before 15mins of scheduled time so as we can safe board on train coaches. This rail code should be followed specially by our business line friends who are always in hurry of doing things. If you get late by some unknown reason and see train moving out of station in front of you, don't dare to board on it.
Accidents resulted in loss of life of many and severe disability. Most of the accidents were purely due to daring of people trying to catch running trains. Not only male members, Females also make such suicidal mistakes.
Its time we should rethink of our day-to-day life code and follow this simple concept to avoid problems to our future dependants.

Digital Down Counters to be put up on Signals:
Considering increasing number of accidents on signals, the council is putting up digital down counter signals indicating down count of the signal time. Due to this down count the vehicle operator can know exactly when his/ her signal is GREEN and then proceed further. Display lights in many signals are not working properly and therefore confuse people many times on many signals.
If you start from DSP Bungalow Chowk and go up to railway station you have to face exactly 6 signals. This increases runtime for persons and therefore everyone is in hurry of reaching destination. Moreover Bicycle owners and pedestrians disturbs a lot on signal crossing. It seems that we Jalgaon People need to make ourselves more aware on signals and traffic view. Even two-wheeler owners, car owners also sometimes make move in RED whenever there is no one to check out. Even in today's educated arena some of people go triple seat on two wheelers, which is illegal.
It seems that we are implementing traffic laws by force not on our own. We need to obey these laws for ourselves only because more disciplined we move, safer we are and our near ones are. If we do not obey these rules, some one like us can also not and may result in accident with our near ones.
