AT1RS - HAMS celebrating 250th Session of Rajya Sabha & 70th anniversary of the Indian Constitution


Dates and time 08.12.2019 to 22.02.2020 qrv on all saturdays, sundays and other holidays

250th Session of Rajya Sabha The Parliament of India is a magnificent manifestation of the democratic ethos of our country. The Parliament of India has three constituents, namely, the President of India, the Rajya Sabha (Council of States) and the Lok Sabha (House of the People). The Council of States (Rajya Sabha) consists of not more than two hundred fifty members, out of which two hundred and thirty-eight members represent the States and Union territories and twelve members are nominated by the President. The Rajya Sabha is a permanent body and is not subject to dissolution. However, one-third of its members retire biennially. A member who is elected for a full term retains his membership for six years.

Rajya Sabha being a federal chamber enjoys certain special powers under the Constitution. All the subjects/areas regarding legislation have been divided into three Lists - Union List, State List and concurrent List. Union and State Lists are mutually exclusive - one cannot legislate on a matter placed in the sphere of the other. However, if Rajya Sabha passes a resolution by a majority of not less than two-thirds of members present and voting saying that it is "necessary or expedient in the national interest" that Parliament should make a law on a matter enumerated in the State List, Parliament becomes empowered to make a law on the subject specified in the resolution, for the whole or any part of the territory of India. 

70th anniversary of the Indian Constitution 

The Constitution of India was framed by a Constituent Assembly set up under the Cabinet Mission Plan of 1946. The Constituent Assembly set up 13 committees for framing the constitution including a Drafting Committee under the Chairmanship of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar. On the basis of the reports of these committees, a draft of the Constitution was prepared by a seven-member Drafting Committee. It is the longest written Constitution in the world containing 395 Articles, 22 Parts and 12 Schedules. If one looks at the formation, adoption and passing of the Constitution of India, it took a total of 2 years, 11 months, and 18 days to complete it. 

People of India are the ultimate custodians of the Constitution. It is in them that sovereignty vests and it is in their name that the Constitution was adopted. The Constitution empowers the citizen, but the citizen too empowers the Constitution – by following it, by adhering to it, by protecting it, and by persevering to make it more meaningful with words and deeds. The Constitution is nobody's preserve – and it is everybody's preserve. The Fundamental Duties of citizens were added to the Constitution by the 42nd Amendment in 1976, upon the recommendations of the Swaran Singh Committee that was constituted by the Government. The Committee suggested that steps needed to be taken to ensure that the individual did not overlook his duties while in exercise of his Fundamental Rights.

Often called "ham radio," the Amateur Radio Service has been around for a century. In that time, it's grown into a worldwide community of licensed operators using the airwaves with every conceivable means of communications technology. Amateur Radio is a fascinating hobby for people or all ages of all walks of life irrespective of age, educational qualifications and status. Its people range in age from youngsters to grandparents. Even rocket scientists and a rock star or two are in the ham ranks. Most, however, are just normal folks who enjoy learning and being able to transmit voice, data and pictures through the air to unusual places, both near and far, without depending on commercial systems. It is well suited to the persons with disabilities and elder citizens who are looking for new friends in their life. 

Ham radio has always been in the forefront whenever a disaster strikes, be it a flood, a cyclone, an earthquake or whatever kind of natural or man made situation.. The Amateur Radio frequencies are the last remaining place in the usable radio spectrum where one as an individual can develop and experiment with wireless communications. Hams not only can make and modify their equipment, but can create w hole new ways to do things
