PANCHAYATI RAJ DAY 2022: The heart of India lies in its village. India has more than six lakh villages, with more than six thousand blocks and more than 750 districts which are all governed by the Panchayati Raj system. Panchayati Raj Institution is said to be one of the oldest governing bodies in India.

The word Panchayat is an amalgamation of two words, ‘Panch’ and ‘Ayat’. Panch means five and ayat means assembly, therefore, Panchayat is said to be an assembly of five members who work for the upliftment of the local communities and resolve disputes at a lower level.

आप सभी को राष्ट्रीय पंचायती राज दिवस की ढेरों शुभकामनाएं। पंचायतें भारतीय लोकतंत्र का आधारस्तंभ हैं, जिनकी मजबूती में ही नए भारत की समृद्धि निहित है। आइए, आत्मनिर्भर भारत के निर्माण में अपनी पंचायतों को और अधिक सशक्त करने का संकल्प लें।

— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) April 24, 2022

Every year, to mark the historic moment of decentralisation of power, India celebrates National Panchayati Raj day on April 24. The day was first celebrated in April 2010 making it one of the most important days in Indian history. On the 12th National Panchayati Day, let’s take a look back at the date, history and other important facts about the Panchayati Raj system and National Panchayati Raj day.

National Panchayati Raj Day: Date and History

As said above, the day was first celebrated on April 24, 2010. The day marks the enactment of the 73rd amendment of the constitution in 1992. Through this historic amendment, the powers of the grassroots were decentralised and the foundation of an institution called Panchayati Raj was laid. Due to this reason, the Ministry of Panchayati Raj commemorates April 24 every year as the National Panchayati Raj Day.

Even before the Constitution declared the diversifying power structure, India realised the need for having governing bodies for the rural areas. In 1957, a committee was established under the chairmanship of Balwantrai Mehta, which suggested bringing on the reforms of the central power system.

Thus, the concept of Panchayati raj came into existence. In 1959, Rajasthan became the first state to implement the system in the country. The scheme was inaugurated by the first Prime Minister of India, the late Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru.

National Panchayati Raj Day 2022: Theme and Celebrations

This year the celebrations will be held without any specific theme. Every year, various village level functions, seminars, and other events take place. This year’s highlight is going to be the award functions that will recognise the best work of panchayats in the country.

The award will be given in the following five categories:

After the Digital India campaign came into existence, many things are being carried out through digital platforms. Panchayats were also not far behind in the significant scheme as in 2021, for the first time, money was transferred to the accounts of the panchayats.

Andre Russell scripted history in men's T20 cricket by becoming the only bowler to have taken four wickets by bowling just one over in a T20 game.

sent the lower order packing in the final over of the game
Gujarat fell much below par score
Kolkata Knight Riders bowled exceptionally well in the back end of the game, picking up seven wickets in the last five overs of the game, denting Gujarat Titans' chances of hitting a big total in the 34th game of the Indian Premier League on Saturday, 23 April.

Out of those seven wickets, Andre Russell scalped four of them in the final over of the game, which also was his only over in the match. Russell started with dismissing Abhinav Manohar in the first ball of the over and then went on to remove Lockie Ferguson, Rahul Tewatia and Yash Dayal in the subsequent deliveries. He conceded just five runs in the process. In the process, Russell became the only person in men's T20 history to achieve the feat of picking four wickets from the only over bowled in a game.

Speaking at the mid innings chat, Russel said that he was not necessarily looking for wickets but concentrating more on landing the ball in the correct spots. He further said that the wicket was gripping and variations would come in handy as the game goes through.

Gujarat Titans, despite scoring 80 runs in the first 10 overs at the expense of just one wicket faltered against good lines and lengths from the KKR bowlers, and were also victim to their own strategising of the batting order. At the end, they were just able to score 156 runs off nine wickets from their 20 overs.

April 23's Doodle is a combination of two pics-Salim holding a brush and her work, which always focused on rural Iraqi women. Therefore, her works depict the rural Iraqi women and the life of peasants through old brush strokes and vivid colours. Today's Google Doodle tribute is to the style in which Salim painted and her contribution to the arts. 

Naziha Salim: Key Facts

Naziha Salim Biography: Early Life, Family, Education, and More

Salim was born into a family of Iraqi artists in Turkey in 1927 and painted the scene. Her father, named Hajji Mohammed Salim, was a pinter and her mother was a skilled embroidery artist. She had three brothers who worked in the arts, including Jawad, who was widely considered one of Iraq's most influential sculptors. She has always enjoyed creating her own artwork.

She went to the Baghdad Fine Arts Institute, where she studied painting and graduated with distinction. Due to her hard work and passion for art, she was awarded a scholarship and became the first woman to receive it, continuing her education in Paris at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts. After completing her graduation, she spent several more years abroad and immersed herself in art and culture. 

She returned to the Fine Arts Institute in Baghdad, where she would teach until retirement. She was active in Iraq's community. She was also one of the founding members of  Al-Ruwwad which is a community of artists that study abroad and incorporate art techniques from Europe into the Iraqi aesthetic. 

Naziha Salim: Works

Later, she authored Iraq: Contemporary Art, which continued as a significant resource in the early development of Iraq's modern art movement. 

Her themes of painting revolve around the representation of women and families, including her own family, rural Iraqi women, peasant women, women at work, Mesopotamian and Arab goddesses, etc. She also participated in several experimental movements, and her work often illustrated the changes taking place in the lives of women. 

Naziha Salim: Paintings, Artworks

Paintings are:

Dancers, date unknown

One Night's Dream, 1978

The Martyr’s Wife, date unknown, now in the Barjeel Collection

Her artworks hang at the Sharjah Art Museum and the Modern Art Iraqi Archive. No doubt she created the magic with dripping brushes and brimmed canvases. Therefore, today's doodle is dedicated to Salim's artwork and a celebration of her long-standing contributions to the art world!

LANGUAGE DAY 2022: April 23 marks the UN English Language Day. The day is observed to spread awareness and respect for the history, culture and achievements of each of the six UN working languages. Furthermore, it is also known for both the birthday and date of death of world-famous playwright William Shakespeare.

UN English Language Day: History

In 2010, the Department of Global Communications decided to observe April 23 as English Language Day together with other days celebrated for each of the UN’s six official languages namely English, Arabic, Chinese, French, Spanish, and Russian.

The main objective of this day is to celebrate multilingualism and cultural diversity and facilitate equal use of all six languages throughout the organisation as well.

UN English Language Day: Significance

English, the international language, is the most broadly used and spoken on the planet. More than 1.75 billion people speak English worldwide, which has become the only way for two speakers with diverse first languages to communicate with each other. Most importantly, the English language has been adopted as an official language in over 67 countries which made it the language of commerce over the world.

So, undoubtedly, this dominating language plays a significant role in the world by creating an impact on every field of work.

Here, let us take a look at some quotes related to the English language given by famous personalities:

Inspirational Quotes:

“With hard work, learning English, and getting involved, there is no limit on what you can achieve.”- Arnold Schwarzenegger

“Speaking English is like a tongue-twister for me. I can speak each word perfectly, but then you have to string them together, like “Blah, blah, blah.” That’s when I get crazy.”- Jackie Chan

“Language is the road map of a culture. It tells you where its people come from and where they are going.”- Rita Mae Brown

“The English language is like London: proudly barbaric yet deeply civilised, too, common yet royal, vulgar yet processional, sacred yet profane.”- Stephen Fry

“We don’t just borrow words; on occasion, English has pursued other languages down alleyways to beat them unconscious and rifle their pockets for new vocabulary.”- James Nicoll
