The positive and life affirmative tips learnt in the 3 day Stress releasing And Positive Attitude Workshop would go a long way in serving the State and its people in a more effective and humane manner. The highly praised and successful workshop was Conducted by Team of Expert Psychologist and Wellness Consultant Swati Kumar along with Motivational Speaker and Stress Release Expert Utsav Arora- under the aegis of Himachal’s own NGO – My Himachal!

The camp had excellent and overwhelming positive feedback from the male and female participants, many of whom requested it to be either extended for atleast 7 days or made a regular part of their regular regimen. Lady Police Members like Kusum Rani and Amrita said they were tensed and stressed that they were willing to resign from the force. But due to the very effective tips and life positive camp by Swati and Utsav they are feeling at home and happy in just 2 days. Many felt such camps should be held for all the senior and junior colleagues as well as it helps them being a better human and police personnel thus serving the People and Official duties more effectively and sincerely.

The credit for this camp also goes to Mr. DP Sharma, IG Police, Police HQ, Shimla, Kangra SP Atul Fulzele and 2nd IR Battalion Deputy Commandant Ajay Singh Bodh, to realize the objectives of a Multi Dimensional Healthy, Happy, and Effective Police Force.

The visiting IG, Himachal Police, Mr. D.P. Sharma was so happy and enthralled to see the activities and results during his interaction with ‘My Himachal’ Experts Swati and Utsav, that he suggested and recommended more camps in various parts of the state. Also present were My Himachal Members- Ms Anandi, Anish Joel and General Secretary Shivani Malhotra.

Ms. Swati, who is an expert on the modern and progressive techniques of Stress release For Police as well as Education Sector, said that Police are under triple stress of performance due to the expectations of Public, Media, Governments and their own Departmental procedures and work. On top of this the constant travel and transfers without any benefit of leave, their mental and family life is always under duress and stress thus hampering them to work more effectively for public and official work. Also due to the constant negative TV programs and that encourage aggressive and negative competition, people are letting go and losing their own creativity and pursuit of self excellence and falling prey to instant gratification of power hungry ambition. Police is also part of us and as human as other humans in society so need regular expression and time out to relax and recharge their energy and positive motivations. Shri Utsav mentioned that modern society and education has a big imbalance as the greedy race to accumulate more and more leaves one finally limping on one leg because the connection with self and own natural environmental surroundings is missing.

They used time tested techniques and from the Eastern Wisdom from Masters, Like Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra, Buddha, Osho, Krishna and Nanak’s Bhakti Keertan as well as tested modern scientific and psychological Techniques. IN Addition to Police and Law enforcement agencies, Swati and Utsav are also extremely in demand and invited to workshops and talks on people developmental skills as well as stress release workshops in other sectors like corporates and educational institutes. This gives them a huge experience and expertise in these multidimensional fields and all that is available for the people of Kangra and Dharamsala. Apart from Human Resource development, they are also part of senior team of ‘My Himachal‘- which is also working with an objective to protect out natural resources and wealth by doing important work in the field of Environment protection and Cleaning of our Rivers and Mountain Wealth.

Back at the Indian Reserve Battalion camp in Sukoh, Dharamsala, It was a site to see the normally tired and grumpy Police personnel of various ranks let go of their normally serious and complaining attitude and become one celebrative and dynamic and rejuvenated happy family of Himachal Police in the service of the common man.

Most Participants were seen very sad that the camp will be over in 3 days and wanted a repeat of such camps in various battalions at regular intervals. They promised that The positive and life affirmative tips learnt in the 3 day Stress releasing And Positive Attitude Workshop will be implemented by all of them and would go a long way in serving the State and its people in a more effective and humane manner. The team’s motto was evident in practice:

Lets Leave this world a little more joyous and beautiful than we found it.Police personnel at MH campMeditatvie MH campMeditatvie MH camp2Group Photo MH Camp

    Good work though. But need to cut roots.. pruning wont help much. That’s a strange vicious circle, where society, religion,, system… create garbage in mind and life of people and gurus come to rescue…same guru’s who ask people to live by unattainable morals..ethics..rules which reamain unattainable by most of people and hence they feel frustrated and guilty..stressed out and feel something wrong is going on..The depression in police forces is not because they are under burden of work..its also because many of them are good human beings..see things getting wrong way done..forced psychologically to be part of wrong things..and hence their souls get burdened..and they think and feel that they are helpless creatures and puppets in the hands corrupt officers and pliticians..if given chance..90% of them would like to bash corrupt officers and politicians.. 😉

    Dharamsala, October 27
    Entering the premises of the 2nd Indian Reserve Battalion at Sokoh, here, is normally a silent and serious affair. However, from October 23 to 25, the place became alive with police personnel engaged in yoga exercises and dance.

    The programme was conducted by psychologist and wellness consultant Swati Kumar along with motivational speaker and stress release expert Utsav Arora, under the aegis of an NGO, My Himachal.

    Participants said they would cherish those days and use the knowledge gained there in making their life stress free. The positive and life-affirmative tips learnt in the three-day stress releasing and positive attitude workshop would go a long way for cops in serving the state and its people in a more effective and humane manner. The camp had received an excellent and overwhelming positive feedback from the participants, many of whom requested it to be either extended or be made a regular feature.

    Policewomen like Kusum Rani and Amrita said they were under so much stress at one time that they had started thinking of leaving the force, but the camp had helped them in coping with it. Many felt that such camps should be held for all senior and junior level employees.

    DP Sharma, IGP, after evaluating the activities and results during his interaction with Swati and Utsav, suggested that such camps should be organised in various parts of the state.

    Swati said policemen worked under huge stress due to the expectations of public, media, government and their higher-ups. Besides, due to constant travel and transfers without any benefit of leave, their mental and family life was always under stress, thus hampering their work. “The police force is part of our society and its personnel need time to relax and recharge their energy and develop a positive attitude,” she added.

    Utsav mentioned that the modern society and education had a big imbalance as the race to accumulate more and more had made people prone to various diseases because the connection with self and nature was missing.

    तनावमुक्त हुए पुलिसकर्मी

    धर्मशाला द्वितीय रिजर्व वाहिनी सकोह में तीन दिवसीय तनाव मुक्ति शिविर ने जवानों को एक नई दिशा प्रदान की है। जहां पहले यहां का वातावरण गंभीर था, वहीं, तीन दिनों के इस कैंप के दौरान यहां एक नया परिवर्तन देखा जा रहा है। यहां अब शांति है।

    यह सब संभव हो पाया है यहां चल रहे तनाव मुक्ति शिविर से। इस आयोजन का श्रेय पुलिस महानिरीक्षक डीपी शर्मा, कांगड़ा के एसपी अतुल फुलझले व द्वितीय वाहनी के डिप्टी कमांडेंट अजय सिंह बौद्ध के प्रयासों से हुआ। इस शिविर का आयोजन पुलिस कल्याण सप्ताह के दौरान पुलिसकर्मियों को बहु उद्देश्यीय स्वास्थ्य लाभ के लिए किया गया था, ताकि पुलिस कर्मचारी अपने क‌र्त्तव्य का निर्वहन पूरी क‌र्त्तव्य निष्ठा से तनाव मुक्त माहौल में कर सकें। शिविर में मनोविशेषज्ञ स्वाति ने एक स्वयं सेवी संस्था उत्सव के माध्यम से जवानों को तनाव मुक्ति के गुरों से अवगत करवाया।

    इस दौरान मनोविशेषज्ञ ने तनाव का मुख्य कारण यह पाया कि पुलिस विभाग से जिस प्रकार से समाज, मीडिया व सरकार की अपेक्षाएं हैं उससे इस विभाग के कर्मचारियों में तनाव बढ़ रहा है। यहीं नहीं फिल्मों में या दूसरे टीवी कार्यक्रमों में पुलिस विभाग के नकारात्मक पक्ष को बढ़ा-चढ़ाकर पेश करने से भी विभाग के कर्मचारियों का मनोबल गिरा है। कर्मचारियों को तीन दिनों के दौरान पतंजलि योग, सूत्र बुद्धा, ओशो, कृष्णा व नानक के भक्ति कीर्तन से प्राप्त आधुनिक वैज्ञानिक तकनीकों से तैयार की गई तनाव मुक्ति तकनीक से प्रशिक्षित किया गया। तनाव मुक्ति शिविर से प्रभावित महिला पुलिस कर्मचारी कुसुम रानी व अमृता बताती है कि वे अब पहले से बेहतर महसूस कर रहे हैं। पहले वे पुलिस सेवा में अपनी सेवाएं देने में खुद को असमर्थ पा रही थी और उन्होंने त्याग पत्र देने का मन बना लिया था। लेकिन इस शिविर के बाद उनमें एक नई उमंग व स्फूर्ति का आभास हुआ है।

    शिविर में पुलिस महानिरीक्षक डीपी शर्मा ने शिरकत की। उन्होंने शिविर के बारे में पुलिसकर्मियों से बातचीत भी की। अधिकतर कर्मचारियों का कहना है कि इस प्रकार के शिविर बार-बार लगाए जाने चाहिएं। यह शिविर 23 अक्टूबर को शुरू हुआ था और रविवार को समाप्त हो गया।
