Our Cultural Heritage - हमें जिन पर नाज़ है।- JIGAR JALANDHARI


Jigar Jalandhari  was associated with AIR Jalandhar since long period & attended studio recording in AIR Jalandhar

The celebrated Urdu poet Janab Jigar Jalandhri is a highly acclaimed poet of international repute who is ruling the hearts of millions of people worldwide. Janab Jigar Jalandhri, otherwise known as Dharampal Marwaha was born to Sh. Des Raj Marwaha & Smt. Kahan Devi on 22-01-1935 in the village Sarangdev of Tehsil Ajnala of Amritsar District of Punjab. The family later shifted to Jalandhar where young Jigar received the highest degree in Urdu i.e. Adeeb Fazil after Graduation and LLB. Since childhood, he was inclined towards Urdu poetry, hence became a disciple of Padam Shree Ustad Josh Malsiani in 1955 who gave him the pen name of Jigar Jalandhri.
Janab Jigar Jalandhari’s poetry and lifestyle have been unique in the sense that in both the realms he abstains from wine and women. He has been successful in busting the myth that wine and women are necessary for quality Urdu poetry. His poetry is as chaste as his lifestyle. His poetry touches upon the myriad aspects of a common man’s life and hence appeals to each and every heart. Simplicity is another hallmark of his writings as most of the words used are picked up from common parlance. Loved alike by connoisseurs and the masses, his couplets are able to enfold profound thoughts into simplest of words so that even children can understand the meaning effortlessly and even non-Urdu knowing younger generation can relish and recite them.

Jigar’s books on poetry include Soz-e-Jigar (Urdu, 1972), Lakht-e-Jigar (Urdu, 1979), Khoon-e-Jigar (Urdu, 1984), Andaz-e-Jigar (Hindi Version, 1987) released by the then President of India, Giani Zail Singh in Rashtarpati Bhavan New Delhi, Dard-e-Jigar (Urdu, 1990), Gul-o-Khaar (Hindi Version, 1992), Parwaz-e-Adab (Urdu, 1992), Hamara Punjab (Urdu, 1995), Parwaz-e-Jigar (Urdu, 1998), Andaz-e-Jigar (Punjabi Version, 2000).Shiromani Sahitkar Janab Jigar Jalandhri was decorated by numerous national and international awards, prominent among which are UP Urdu Academy (1980 and 1985). All India Meer Academy (1985), First Sahir Ludhianvi Award (1986), President’s Award (1987), Rotary International Literary Award (1990), North Zone Cultural Center (1998), Punjab Rattan Award by Governor of Punjab (2000), Rotary Clubs, Jalandhar Jaycee, Chardhikala Literary Award etc. Doordarshan Delhi and Jalandhar produced a documentary on his literary works in 2000 which is being telecast from time to time.
The renowned singers Jagjit Singh and Penaz Misani have given their melodious voice to his ghazals and have made a place in the hearts of people after these ghazals were broad cast by Parsar Bharti.

Bitcoin for the unconnected: The Finnish protocol that lets you buy and sell currency through your TV

Finnish system Kryptoradio transmits Bitcoin transaction data via airwaves for potential application in everything from vending machines to laundromats.Bitcoin, the cryptocurrency to beat, has found its way into well over a million digital wallets worldwide but it's yet to hit mass adoption. Finnish technology co-operative Koodilehto believes the answer to Bitcoin's search for wider accessibility and reliability could lie in TV and radio signals...

Since early September, a pilot of 'Kryptoradio' — a data transmission protocol developed by Sipola and Joel Lehtonen — has been successfully transmitting Bitcoin transaction and exchange rate data in real time through Finland's digital national TV network....

The network, which covers the entire Finnish population, is run byDigita, which describes the partnership as an "interesting and exciting" way to open up "new possibilities"."What we offer is one-way Bitcoin payment confirmation information and exchange data which anyone can receive through a standard digital TV device and our custom software," Sipola says.

Kryptoradio works by connecting to the Bitcoin network as a transaction occurs. Kryptoradio inspects the transaction and turns the information into a data stream which it sends over the Digita network. Each payment contains identifying information retained from the block chain, which enables it to be sent to the correct recipient.

On the recipient side, the broadcast is picked by a computer connected to any DVB-T receiver allowing Bitcoin payments to be accepted and monitored without an internet connection. Currently, any computers that use Kryptoradio must run Linux, but Koodilehto is looking at expanding support to other platforms.

Bitcoin Everywhere and Anywhere
According to Koodilehto, offering internet-free ways of trading Bitcoin makes the system more accessible and reliable. Kryptoradio won't suffer from internet outages, for example, and can be used in areas where internet connections are poor or where operators don't want to invest in mobile infrastructure.

Koodilehto claims in the future the service could be used to create Bitcoin counterparts for cash payment terminals, which can be utilised in everything from cash registers to vending machines. But for now the co-op is focusing on the transmission side and has opened up its protocol to encourage third party developers to get involved.

"We can send any kind of information we want, but at the moment we use very little bandwidth because Bitcoin data doesn't take up much space," Sipola says. "It's also possible to send text messages via Kryptoradio. There are many uses and applications beyond Bitcoin."

When the need to broadcast larger amounts of data grows, the DVB-T network can be scaled up to meet those needs, Sipola says. Currently Bitcoin protocol restricts block sizes to one megabyte but Koodilehto believes that handling 10 megabyte blocks won't be a problem in the future.
