Happy Holi to all the Members & their families.

Happy Holi to all the Members & their families.

Holi 2019
Holi is one of the major festivals of India and is celebrated on different dates every year. This great Indian festival is observed at the end of the winters in the month of March after the full Moon. A day before Holi a large bonfire is lit that helps in burning out the evil spirits and that whole process is called as Holika Dahan.
It is highly prohibited to perform the bonfire of the Holika Dahan before the Sunset as that can be not really be the cause for bringing in a lot of misfortune in life. It must be performed on a specific time on the Purnima Tithi only after the Sunset. It is very important to choose a good Muhurat in order to perform the ritual of Holika Dahan. Ideally it must be performed on Pradosh Kaal when the night and day are believed to meet each other.
It is prohibited to perform the ritual of Holika Dahan until the Bhadra Tithi. Also, the the exact time for the same varies from state to state all over in India.
On the day of Holika dahan, a special type of Puja has to be performed so as to keep children and the other family members in good of the health and keep away from them all types of evils.

The celebration of Holika Dahan is carried out in order in the remembrance of the Holika. In an attempt to fulfil the wish of her demon brother Holika tried to sit in the fire and burn him as he worshipped Lord Vishnu and not her brother. As she had that blessing of not getting affected by the fire so she sat with Prahalada in the fire. But, because of the great devotion of Prahalada, he was saved and Holika was burnt to death.
On the day of Holi, people enjoy by splashing colors over each other and they also play with liquid colors. This part of playing with colours goes on till the end of the afternoon and from the evening people start off with preparing delicious meals.
Also in various parts of the country Holi is celebrated in different way and with different names.

Excessive Work Pressure took away another life : Shri Dashru Majhi, SPM, Bandhbahal Colony S O under Sambalpur Division expired today (19.03.2019) in office

Excessive Work Pressure took away another life : Shri Dashru Majhi, SPM, Bandhbahal Colony S O under Sambalpur Division expired today (19.03.2019) in office


Shri Dashru Majhi, SPM, Bandhbahal Colony S O, a single handed post office under Sambalpur Division expired today (19.03.2019) morning at 9.30 AM due to cardiac arrest.

Late Shri Majhi was very sincere and punctual in attending office. After entering into office today (19.03.2019) before 9.30 AM, when he started the preliminary works to make the office functional, he suddenly felt uneasy. Since no other official was present near him, he rushed to the nearby Postman’s quarters for help where he became unconscious and suddenly with the help of other staff / family members while he was being taken to the nearest TRL Hospital, Belpahar, he breathed his last on the way.

As reported to this Circle Union the work pressure of Bandhbahal Colony S O is excessively high and requires to be upgraded to a triple handed office. Being failed to cope with the undue work pressure on one hand and continuous threatening by the administration on unachievable POSB / PLI / RPLI / BD targets etc. on the other, late Shri Majhi had already approached the Divisional administration to transfer him from that office. But his prayers had gone futile and ultimately the SPM met the death.

Late Shri Majhi is left with his wife Tanuja Majhi, one college going son D Majhi (25) and one college going daughter. Deepika Majhi (20).

Deeply shocked, the AIPEU, Group-C sincerely condoles the sad and unfortunate demise of Shri Majhi and prays Lord Jagannath to shower His unending blessings over the bereaved family members to bear with this irreparable loss.

Let the divine soul rest in eternal peace.
