Dear Chumber Ji
Jai Bhim!
I accidentally came across the Ambedkartimes.com on 17 February, 2013 while searching Buddhist monasteries in London. When I have gone through it, I was pleased that even in outside of India, how people come together and celebrate happy events. I never thought before this. Even in sad moment people come together. I have also gone through some articles in a short time, and felt so happy. You are doing great job in western culture. We will be in touch.
With best wishes and regards

AMBEDKAR TIMES-DESH DOABA

WITH A VISION OF BABASAHEB DR. AMBEDKAR

Dear Prem Chumber Ji,

I have been reading “Ambedkar Times” ever since its inception and appreciate your ardent dedication inprojecting the image of the noble and lofty ideals of our pioneers. I also congratulate you for starting “Desh Doaba” recently and wish you continued success in your future endeavors towards community service.

Mr. Chumber is a very prolific writer and aprofessional journalist to handle the sensitive issues and concerns, pertaining to the interest of the community as a whole, in a very unbiased and objective manner. The formidable task performed by Babasaheb Dr. B.R.Ambedkar as a distinguished scholar in the framing of India’s constitution and for providing a pioneering leadership in the emancipation of the millions of the down –trodden is very well illustrated in your columns. You are also doing a good job in highlighting therevival of the movement of Ad-Dharm founded byBabu Mangu Ram Muggowalia in the 1925’s, who also supported the mission of Babasaheb.

Since I had the privilege to meet Babasaheb and BabuMangu Ram Muggowalia in person in 1956 and 1963 respectively, this message also carries my humble tributes to the memory of these noble souls for their selfless services towards social justice. Mr. Chumber needs encouragement and help with a wider and robust readership of his News papers to build a healthy and enlightened public opinion on various issues confronting the community. Thanks

PUNJAB GOVERNMENT’S DIVIDE AND RULE POLICY

Editor; s mail
Dear editor,
"Jai Bhim"

I really like the work on Ambedkartimes.com. It was my first time visiting the website and was a great experience. I really appreciate that the work done by you for our community and its coming out thorugh the website.

In referance to above cited subject i want bring in your your kind attention towards Punjab Government as it is going to kill our people by their irregular reservation policies. Please find attach file for gravity and detail of situation. Same situation developed in Haryana few years back in Mr.Om Prakash Chautala government, at that time our people gathered gone to Punjab and Haryana high court and got justice. The Court ruled government's reservation in reservation (SC category further categorised in SC-A and SC-B basically means division of community) policy is totally "unconstitutional"and immediately stopped.

The Punjab government needs copy of this judgement. The Chamar Mahan Sabha highlighted it showing agitation. It is heard Fake SC certificates are being made by some (so called) upper caste people for taking reservation benifits, this is emerged as double edged weopon against our community. SC Certificates should be verified/checked properly guilty persons should be punished hard.kindly aware our people with above facts through our site so that more and more people join this agitation and to set alive the sacred flame burned by Baba Saheb Dr.B R Ambedkar.

Dear Editor,
I read with interest the report of Mr. Pradeep Singh Attri on the function in Hungry. We shall not get perturbed on these things unduly. I fully appreciate the views and feelings of Mr. Attri. We need to make some space for us with concerted efforts. You may recall that even Dr. Ambedkar was not recognised and honoured in India either knowingly or ignorance. Now the things have changed and rightly so. I am confident that things would change as we gain strength.

I take this opportunity to wish you and the readers of the Ambedkar Times all the best in the New Year and the years to come.

AMBEDKARTIMES WEBSITE & NEWS PAPER

 Dear Brother,

I have gone through Ambedkartimes (print version) and quite impressed with it. Today is the age of communication and whosoever leads this race becomes successful. In North America and in Europe , we lack behind in this field. There is no paper to put our point of view. If you send any article or news item to the papers, they publish if they suite them; otherwise they just ignore. Your website has been successful to connect many people around the globe and also spreading message of our forefathers. But everybody doesn’t have computer and know how to operate it. That is where the newspaper becomes handy. By starting a newspaper, you have filled a vacuum which existed from a long time. I hope our people support you fully and both of your ventures wear fruit.

Wish you all the success,

Dear Editor,

I peruse the Ambedkartimes regularly. Some of the articles/contributions on community matters are really good, informative and thought provoking. Some of us may like to get in touch with the writers/contributors with view to discuss or clarify the matter further.

My suggestion, therefore, is that the e-mail ID of the writer shall be indicated along with his/her name so that communication is facilitated.

I am also enclosing a photo for appropriate use. The caption of the photo is: Ambassador of India to Belarus Ramesh Chander speaking on the foreign policy of India at the Belarus Academy of Public Administration in Minsk.

BRUTAL ATTACK ON SANT NIRANJAN DASS JI
AND SANT RAMANAND JI IN VIENNA

Dear Editor,

The Guru Ravidass community & all those who believe in humanity got furious over the brutal attack on Sant Niranjan Dass Ji & Sant Ramanand Ji in Guru Ravidass Dharam Sthan in Vienna , Austria on 24th May.2009 in which several followers were seriously injured.

The feelings of our community were unprecedented & our community for the first time showed this type of resentment & reaction .Three of our community members were killed -one in Phillaur, one in Lambra, Jalandhar and one in Dhillwan, Jalandhar and hundreds injured seriously. Thousands affraid to be trapped by police in different type of cases.
                            
Our organisation -Vigilant Brotherhood (International) Jalandhar, Bhai Jaita Ji (Baba Jiwan Singh) Welfare Society, Jalandhar president-S. Jit Singh Miglani and everyone express deep condolence on Shahidi of Sant Ramanand Ji and others. We pray for speedy recovery of Sant Niranjan Dass Ji Maharaj. 
 
WHAT IS REQUIRED: - OUR SUGGESTIONS
1. All vigilant people should come forward to let people in general know about the reasons for such attempts.

2. Under the present circumstances what should our community do?

We should know that only 8-10% of our community live in Punjab & do our religious and social ceremonies in the presence of Guru Granth Sahib not because they are Sikhs, but simply because Bani of our Guru- Shri Guru Ravidass Ji respectfully enshrined in that Guru Granth Sahib.
                    
Thanks,

Thank you for recommending Prof. Hardtmann's book. I have a number of Dalit books and this wonderful book offers a fresh perspective I had not considered. The diversity of views within the Dalit culture are very healthy. Guru Mangoo Ram expressed an appreciation of Dr. Ambedkar's leadership.

Reviewing your website, it does look like Ad-Dharm has somewhat of a presense in California, though further north. I read there is an Ad-Dharm Granth. Is this Valmiki's Ramayana, with the works of Sant Kabir, Ravidas, and Namdev as found in the Adi Granth? Does it include the writings of Guru Mangoo who founded the Ad-Dharm movement?
 
If it doesn't exist, I would love to see a collection of Dalit spiritual works and promote the book locally. I want people to be made aware of this rich spiritual tradition. Ad-Dharm is particularly significant in a Dalit context, because it focuses particuarly on Dalit and Shudra spiritual leaders, which I really like. Guru Ravidas and Sant Guru Kabir have a particularly enriching quality of thought. Reading their words creates an immediate state of peace and well-being.
 
Ad-Dharm is a very rich tradition. The entire Adivasi movement in India is beautiful and powerful. I would love Americans to become more appreciative of this, so we can understand genuine Indian spirituality.
 
Respectfully,
 

Michael Johnson

Ad Dharm granth was prepared by Sant Isher Dass of village Anandgarh of District Hoshiarpur, Punjab (India). It is called Ad Parkash Greanth. Babu Mangoo Ram Mugowalia's writing are still scattered in different magazines, posters, pamphlets etc.

Efforts are being made for the last few years to put them together.

A Tribute to Sant RamaNand ji

Dear Editor,

I am writing this to pay tributes to Sant Rama Nand ji of Dera Ballan, through the columns of the esteemed Ambedkar Times, who fell victim to the mindless and tragic shoot out in Vienna. It was an outrageous and unwarranted attack on a spiritual and saintly soul. It was my good fortune to know the Sant. His services to the community will be remembered in the years to come. It is gratifying to learn that Sant Niranjan Dass ji is out of danger and is responding to the treatment in Vienna.

May God grant peace to the departed soul and speedy recovery to Sant Niranjan Dass ji.

Dear Editor,

We condemn the attack on Sant Rama Nand and Sant Niranjan Dass Ji with guns and knives by some disgruntled elements at Shri Guru Ravidass Temple in Vienna ( Austria ) on May 24th, 2009. In which Sant Rama Nand Ji lost his life. We appeal to our whole society to condemn this event and organize to tackle this big problem.

What type of presence does Ad-Dharm have in America I am very interested in it, as I find the work of both Ravidas and Kabir to be inspiring. I also have great respect for Dr. Ambedkar's perspective on Buddhism. It is refreshing. How compatible is Ad-Dharm with Navayana Buddhism? I do think Ad-Dharm and Navayana Buddhism have a particularly refreshing quality, and being tied to the Dalit Culture, they represent the heart of India . I live in California , and we have plenty of Hinduism but virtually no liberating Dalit Spirituality which actively engages the world for positive change. What is in the southern California area ?

Thanks,
Michael Johnson

Thanks for visiting the website and having interest in the work of Guru Ravidass, Satguru Kabir, Dr. Ambedkar, Budhisim and Ad Dharm.

Remembering Tejinder Singh Sibia

Gurbux Bagha
(Sacramento)

I met Tejinder Singh Sibia through my brother Paul in 1983 in a party at his house. I still remember the colorful atmosphere. During our conversation I found out that I knew his father very well and I used to visit their poultry farm quite as often as Poultry Advisor. This bonded further our relations. He believed to the core of his heart to further the cause of Sikhism and Punjabi culture. Tejinder Sibia' family is the golden family. It was so unfortunate that he lost his son, to whom I saw almost every day after school. He used to visit my business for lunch break. One day I went to Taco Bell drive through and I placed my order, when I went to the check-out window, he was there and when he saw me, he refused to take money. I insisted several times, but without vain, but he never took the money. He said, “That is what we teach them, respect elders.” When ever I went to the Library I used to see him. Tejinder was a man full of life and fun. He will be missed for ever.

TRIBUTE TO NISHIKANT WAGHMARE

www.ambedkartimes.com very shocked to hear about the sad demise of Nishikant Waghmare who was very dedicated to the mission of Baba Sahib Dr. B.R. Ambedkar and Lord Buddha. He also sent articles/news like "Buddha Dhamma Diksha Golden Jubilee Celebration in Mumbai" to www.ambedkartimes.com . Our hearts are full of sympathy for Waghmare’s family in this deep sorrow.

CONDOLENCE ON DEMISE OF NISHIKANT WAGHMARE

Dear All,
Its a very sad and shocking news to hear the untimely demise of our beloved brother Nishikant. I had a privilege to know him since 1989 when the Ambedkar Centenary Celebration Committee, UK was set up. He offered his services to the committee. Because of his commitment and dedication, he was elected as the International Coordinator and became a roaming ambassador of Ambedkarism and Buddhism. He was present almost in every function whether it was organised by the Committee in UK, USA or India. In his capacity as an International Coordinator, he helped  to make all the functions a great success. Since then he visited us many times. We will miss him. His loss has created a great vacuum in our movement which can never be filled.

My heart felt condolences to his bereaved family, relatives and friends.

On behalf of Indian Buddhist Society Toronto, Canada, we send our condolences to the family of Late Mr. Nishikant Waghmare and to his dear and near friends. The news of his death took us by shock and during his recovery in the hospital we never thought that he is going to leave us for ever.  His sudden death is not a loss to his family only, but it is a big loss for the community too. He was a staunch Ambedkarite Buddhist who had dedicated himself fulltime for the mission of spreading Buddha's dhamma. He will be missed fro ever and may Lord Buddha shower him with peace!

PRAY FOR BROTHER NISHIKANT

Dear all,
Namo Buddha !

I just learned from Mr. Prem Kumar Chumber (Editor: ambedkartimes.com) about brother Nishikant's health. I am sorry to hear about his health and wish him all the best and pray to Lord Buddha for his quick recovery. Brother NIshikant is a great practicing Buddhist and prayers of all Buddhists are with him for his well being. 

May Lord Buddha bless him with good health !

TRIBUTE TO NISHIKANT WAGHMARE

When I read sad demise of brother Nishikant Waghmare through  ambedkartimes.com, I was shocked. I met him first time at Mumbai when I was there to receive ‘Bheem Ratna Award’ given by the Federation of Ambedkarite and Buddhist Organization UK . In Punjabi circle he was famous as a "WANG-MARE" instead of Waghmare which means when you ask him to come any time and any where in the world, he was used to reach definitely since he was working in Air India and was able to move around easily. He was true follower of Baba Sahib Dr. Ambedkar, Dharma doot of Buddha, great sympathizer, dedicated social worker, best co-coordinator of events and a great friend to all. His contribution to promote Ambedkar-Buddha Mission and empowered dalit movement is unforgettable.

He never compromised with his challenges and continued his hard work to achieve higher goals. I met him fifteen years ago and during this time he organized many great events and was a role model for others.  He was resident of Rajnigandha. Even though Mr. Waghmare is not with us physically but he will remain in our memories for ever.

Lord Buddha said, “Far surpassing the fragrance of sandal or incense or lotus or jasmine, is the fragrance of virtue and faint is this fragrance of incense and sandal but the fragrance of virtue ascends to the highest place.”  

I Harmesh Jassal, on behalf of Dr. Ambedkar Weaker Section Welfare Society Punjab , Buddhist Society Punjab and Dr. Ambedkar Mission Society Punjab pay homage to beloved Mr. Nishikant Waghmare. I join in with his sorrow-stricken family during their difficult time to deal with their greatest loss of Late Mr. Nishikant Waghmare.

I would like to congratulate the entire community on the second anniversary of Ambedkartimes.com.   Ambedkartimes.com is doing an excellent job in uniting the Dalit community from all over the world.  The website is a forum where news and information is showcased of events involving Dalits.  Ambedkartimes.com is the only online media tool relating solely to Dalit issues.  I would like to commend Mr. Prem Chumber on his tireless efforts ensuring Ambedkartimes.com is a success.  I also would like to thank everyone who has contributed to the website throughout these two years.  Without the community's contributions, nothing can be achieved.

Dear Prem Chumber JI,

Congratulations, Your web site completed two years. The seed sown by you now have become full grown plant and now will start bearing fruits. In any society if major changes come, it is because of Writers or Poets. You are a writer of very high standard and top class professional. Your writings in major news papers in California have impressed me very much. You have been able to devote time for the endless cause, to be highly commended. There are few people you can count on fingers who can do this gigantic job for the benefit of depressed and common man.

Please convey my thanks to your family, without them you would not have been able to achieve this goal.

Sincerely,
Gurbax Bagha (California)
