Haryana, January 3rd A tenth standard girl, Sahira Jain, who performed a Latin dance form bagged the gold medal in the 11th National Dance Sport Championship. She thanked her parents and teachers for their constant support in pursuing dance. She said, "My dance form originated from Latin America and Spain.

It is different from the regular Bollywood and Indian dance forms. I have done a lot of hard work for the nationals. My parents and teachers supported me in my journey so I owe my success to everyone. I want to travel after completing my 10th standard so that I can learn from international artistes. I want to then follow my grandfather's footsteps and crack the UPSC exam," Sahira had bagged the gold last year too in the competition.

At a gathering organised at Shree Shanti Nagar Shwetambar Murtipujak Tapagacha Jain Sangh, Sri Prasaankirtisagar Surisvarji Maharaj, who is a part of J Punit Charitable Trust, said that only 0.1% of community members work as government employees. “There is a brain drain wherein the members from our community want to work for multinational companies, but such people don’t benefit the country, except economically. There are very few Jains who think about appearing for civil services examination,” said Sri Bhavyakirtisagar Maharaj from the trust.

Hemendra Shah, retired additional secretary, said youngsters from Uttar Pradesh are schooled from an early age to appear for civil services examination, whereas not many Gujaratis and Jains opt for it. “The community lacks awareness towards these jobs. Thus, speaking to parents about it is a good start in that direction,” said Sunil Shah, Chartered Accountant. “Government jobs offer a security that private companies don’t. This applies, especially, in the times when people are losing their jobs,” said Geeta Shah, superintendent of customs.

Jain religious leaders have asked community members to consider jobs with government agencies. The Jains, who form around 0.4% of the country’s population, have traditionally been into business.


Author : Acharya Mahashraman

Jain Acharya Maha-shraman’s simple-to-follow prescriptions for leading a purposeful and satisfying life free from sorrow by limiting desires presented in this booklet drawing from Rajasthani literature conforms to the Kannada saying Asseye dukhhakke moola which translates to “Desire is the root cause of sorrow.”

The guidelines suggested by the monk are based on Jain Philosophy focussed on eschewing anger, ego, greed and attachment to worldly things. His five maxims of spiritual practice 1. Mind-body harmony, 2. Restraint of reaction, 3. Universal amity, 4. Restraint on food (mithaahara) and 5. Restraint of speech (mithabhashana) - are present through anecdotes drawn from the ways of life in society. The benefits of controlling anger and avoiding harsh words through continuous practice can be appreciated by reading the biographies of great personalities and learn how calmly they dealt with life’s problems bugging everyone, according to the Monk, respected for dedicating his life to elevate spirituality, culture and human conduct.


Jain followers approached the Gohad Police Station demanding that Premnarayan Mahor be booked for insulting their religion. A Communist Party of India (M) leader in Bhind district of Madhya Pradesh who shared an image claiming that Jain saints took part in a protest against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act has been booked for insulting the Jain religion. Former Gohad Nagarpalika president Premnarayan Mahor had shared on his Facebook wall an image that showed a group of Digambar Jain Saints and Devotees sitting on a Road. He captioned the image claiming they too were protesting against the new citizenship law.

The complaint identified the saint as one of the main figures of the religion and said he or other saints have nothing to do with politics. An FIR under Section 295 of IPC (injuring or defiling places of worship with intent to insult religion) was lodged against Mahor, who has unsuccessfully contested assembly elections in the past, at the Gohad Police Station. The offence is non bailable and could lead to arrest, said in-charge of Gohad Police Station Sanjay Ashok.
