London, October 24: Marking the 30th anniversary of the November 1984 anti-Sikh pogroms, the Wiener Library is proud to feature the work 1984: Jis tann lãgé soee jãné by photographer Gauri Gill. The images and texts from the artist's 1984 notebooks reflect upon the pogroms and their ongoing impact in India. The images are from the resettlement colonies of Trilokpuri, Tilak Vihar and Garhi - various sites across Delhi - as well as protest rallies in the city. The accompanying texts by leading artists, poets, filmmakers and writers from Delhi remark upon the event, via the images, in thoughtful ways.
The exhibition also contains photographs of the pogrom as it occurred in November 1984 itself, and are drawn from the work of Indian photographers, Ashok Vahie, Ram Rahman and Sondeep Shankar.
Contributors to this project include contemporary Indian artist Arpana Caur; Senior Advocate and Human Rights activist, Harvinder Singh Phoolka, academic Dr Navsharan Singh; eminent historian Dr Uma Chakravarti; prizewinning Canadian author Jaspreet Singh and Parvinder Singh of the National Union of Journalists (NUJ).


The genocidal pogroms against the Sikh people in India in November 1984 left thousands dead. In many of the outer areas of the capital, New Delhi, whole neighborhoods were wiped out. Women were raped in large numbers. Senior politicians of the Congress (I) party led mobs, assisted by the police and administration. Thirty years on, no memorials exist to the dead and the perpetrators continue to enjoy complete impunity. But the silence is slowly breaking. Not just about the damage caused to the justice system, memory and language in India, but also about the individual and collective trauma that exists within Sikh communities across the world.
The event will feature speeches from Lord Indarjit Singh CBE, human rights barrister Schona Jolly and Parvinder Singh of the NUJ.
Professor Spencer is Director of the Helen Bamber Centre for the Study of Rights, Conflict and Mass Violence at Kingston University. His most recent book, Genocide since 1945 (Routledge, 2012) traces the history of genocide since the Holocaust looking at a number of cases across continents and decades.
Lord Indarjit Singh CBE is Director of the Network of Sikh Organisations UK, Vice Chair and Founder of the InterFaith Network UK. He is also Head and Co-Ordinator of the Sikh Chaplaincy Services. He is a member of the House of Lords, editor of the Sikh Messenger, presenter of 'Thought for the Day' on BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio 2's 'Pause for Thought'.
Schona Jolly is a writer, journalist and a barrister specialising in human rights and equality law. She is from London, but has lived and worked in a number of countries, including India. She is particularly interested in South Asian affairs and writes for a number of international publications on India. She is an executive committee member of the Bar Human Rights Committee.
Attendance at this event is free but booking is essential as space is limited. Exhibition Time 7pm to 10pm.

Bathinda: October 23: The Prime Minister Narendra Modi who has taken various steps to provide and deliver best governance to the people has come out with another advisory to improve the system of delivery and for effective implementation of the policies. The aim is to tone up the decision making process of the government.

The bureaucrats has been advised not go ahead with any decision unless written orders are issued by their higher authorities or superior bosses. This advisory has been issued by the Prime Minister’s office last week. Written confirmation of any oral order will be an essential from now onwards, irrespective of whether such instructions are in accordance with the rules or not.

"If any officer receives oral instructions from the Minister or from his personal staff and the orders are in accordance with the norms, rules, regulations or procedures, they should be brought to the notice of the Secretary (or the head of department where the officer concerned is working in)", says the para no 4.13 of the official note issued on the directive of the PMO.

The official note states, "In rare and urgent cases when the Minister is on tour or is sick and his approval has to be taken on telephone, the decision of the minister shall be conveyed by his private secretary in writing. In such case, confirmation will be obtained on file when the minister returns to headquarters or rejoins."

Earlier the Prime Minister Narendra Modi after taking over as PM called a meeting of Secretaries of the Central government in the first week of June and assured the bureaucracy of protection against hateful prosecution for bona fide decisions. He even asked the Secretaries to the government to approach him or mail him directly with inputs and ideas on any issue for deciding matters swiftly. This exercise has provided much needed morale booster dosage and motivation to the bureaucracy. Around two dozen Secretaries to the government have put up their views in this direct interaction with the Prime Minister, which was considered very fruitful in the bureaucratic circles.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi suggested the Secretaries to build their teams and run the show from the front by focussing on agenda of governance. PM Modi addressing the bureaucrats said “days of demoralisation have gone and now you will enjoy working, you all are talented people".

PM Modi have asked the bureaucrats to exhibit high degree of professionalism, follow the constitution, uphold sovereignty and integrity of the country, maintain integrity in public service and be fair and impartial in their conduct.

Heavy task force of SGPC (Shriomani Gurdwara Pharbandhak Committee) was deployed in the periphery of the Golden Temple to provide sense of security in the minds of the visiting devotees.


According to SGPC the significance of Diwali festival manager of the Golden Temple said that on the same day in 1620, sixth Sikh master Guru Hargobind Sahib was released by the Mughal emperor Jahangir from the Gwalior fort along with the 52 other kings.
