  2. Thank you for the fulfilling session, Sir.

    1. Lal Bahadur Shastri Ji, the second Prime Minister of India, shares birthday with Mahatma Gandhi, was short in his physical stature but tall in his resolve. He coined one of the greatest slogans – ‘Jai Javan Jai Kisan’. He promoted the White Revolution by creating National Dairy Development Board (supported the AMUL Milk co-operative) and the Green Revolution by setting up Food Corporation’s Act 1964.

    2. Khalistan Movement: Operation Black Thunder was commanded by Kanwar Pal Singh Gill (KPS Gill) began on 9 May 1988. The operation used snipers and minimum force under full public scrutiny.

    3. The technical name for America – Iran Nuclear Deal is Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)

    4. “Parasparopagraho Jivanam” is a very meaningful Jain aphorism that is translated as “Souls render service to one another”. It is so true that interdependence is the norm of life. It strongly holds good for the world we live today wherein people migrate to different countries finding the livelihood. We should always remember this especially before making any comments on other communities (maybe a region, religion, etc.) Nature is strong enough to keep everyone happy and we just need to believe in it.

    5. Simply put, if a person receives money from abroad and keeps it with him/her without spending, then it does not add to Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
    GDP (at market prices) is calculated using 1. Expenses towards household consumption, 2. Net investments, 3. Government costs and 4. Net trades (exports-imports).
    While there is no mention of remittances in the calculation of GDP, the amount spent on household consumption (for instance) gets added. So, earn well and spend well to increase GDP… 🙂

    6. Forest Survey of India (FSI) assesses forest cover of the country every 2 years by digital interpretation of remote sensing satellite data and publishes the results in a biennial report called ‘The state of Forest Report’

    Bear (support, vb) – I have always heard my boss saying “Please bear with me”, which usually means “You don’t have an option”… 🙂

    9. Anthropogenic (caused or produced by humans) – The overwhelming evidence points to the reality of anthropogenic global warming

    10. KISS Principle: “Keep it Short and Simple”

    11. The argument, Quarrel, Altercation, battle, war, Holocaust, Armageddon, Destruction

    12. Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD): Very disturbing word! Both the attacker and the defender use destructive weapons to cause the annihilation of both parties.
