Gita Press Published 41 Cr Book , Biggest hindu book publisher with turnover Rs100 Cr

 




Gorakhpur:Gita Press is the world's largest publisher of Hindu religious texts. It has so far printed 41.7 crore books. Out of this, 16.21 crore books are of Bhagwat Gita. 11.73 crore Tulsi Das's Ramcharitmanas. There are 2.58 crore Puranas and Upanishads.

Talking about earnings, there was a turnover of Rs 100 crore in 2022. It was only Rs 39 crore in 2016. Every year the turnover of Gita Press increased. Even when the earnings of other publishing houses declined during GST, demonetisation and Covid, the turnover of Gita Press continued to grow.

According to the website, the aim of the institution is to propagate the values of Sanatan Dharma to the general public. Gita Press has recently been announced to be awarded the 'Gandhi Peace Prize' for 2021. It has been a matter of debate ever since. Today in Mega Empire, know the story of becoming the Empire of Gita Press...

Marwari businessman Jaydayal Goenka launches Gita Press

Jaydayan Goenka was a resident of Bankura in West Bengal. Marwari by caste and businessman by work. They were engaged in the trade of cotton, kerosene, textiles and utensils. He was known as an honest businessman from Bihar to Jharkhand. In these cities Jaideel used to go in connection with work and after finishing work he used to do satsang by forming a troupe. There he recited the Gita and discussed it.

So much crowd started to gather for satsang in Kolkata that Jaydayal 's house started to shrink. Then the whole group rented a place on Bansatalla Road in Kolkata itself in 1922. It was named Govind Bhawan.

Govind Bhavan itself became the home of Jayadayal. They stayed there. Gradually his disillusionment with work began to fade and the other end of disillusionment began to form groups to discuss the Gita. He himself had mastered the art of interpreting the Gita.

Printing of books started with a Rs 600 printing machine

Jaideel felt that the correct translation of the Gita was not available in the market. Jayadeva said this in the Satsang. Gorakhpur-based businessmen Ghanshyam Das Jalan and Hanuman Prasad Poddar were present at the satsang.

Ghanshyam Das said that if the press is set up in Gorakhpur, I will handle it. After this, in 1923, the press was started by renting a room in Urdu Bazar for 10 rupees a month. A hand press worth Rs 600 was purchased.

Three years later, in 1926, a house was bought behind Sahibganj for Rs 10,000. Even today this is the headquarters of Geeta Press. Today this place is spread over 2 lakh square feet. The Press occupies 1.45 lakh square feet in the complex and houses and shops occupy the remaining space.

Kalyan Magazine makes Gita Press a talking point

In 1926, the All India Marwari Agrawal Mahasabha was being held in Delhi. Large number of people were present on the occasion. Industrialists Ghanshyam Das Birla and Jamnalal Bajaj were among those present. Both of them were influenced by the ideas of Mahatma Gandhi in those days.

In the meeting, discussions were held on various aspects of Hindu Dharma. Arguments began between the parties. While Jamnalal Bajaj spoke of ending child marriage and the purdah system, his secretary Khemka stressed on preserving the traditions of Hindus.

A few days later, it emerged that Khemka's speech was written by Hanuman Prasad Poddar. Poddar started bringing out a welfare magazine on the issues discussed in the meeting. This is how this magazine, established since 1926, now comes out.

The growing mutual animosity in the country became one of the reasons for the flourishing of the Gita Press

In the book Gita Press and the Making of Hindu India, Akshay Mukul says that the success of Gita Press rests on three things:

1. Hindi language as the language of Hindus in the late 19th and early 20th century. At this time, Hindi was growing from a newspaper to a journal and as the language of the people.

2. Gita Press and Kalyan Magazine were giving a new thought to the Marwari community as well as Hindus. Profits had no role in their printing. They were being printed with the aim of saving Sanatan culture.

3. Since the beginning of the 20th century, there was a rift between Hindus and Muslims in the country. With the freedom struggle, a parallel fight had started between the two communities. There were riots in the country. The issue of cow slaughter was gaining momentum in the then United Provinces and Hindi-speaking states like Bihar. Apart from the Congress, people like Madan Mohan Malviya, Purushottam Das Tandon, KM Munshi and Seth Govind Das were supporting the Gita Press.

How is Gita Press able to sell books at affordable prices?

The book, published by Gita Press, is priced at Rs 2. Books in the press are also cheaper than other publications. So the question is, how is this possible? So the answer is raw material.


Gita Press directly procures the raw material for printing the book. This saves a lot of money on infrastructure and transportation costs. Apart from this, Geeta Press sells clothes and medicines through Geeta Textile Department and Geeta Ayurveda Department.

यहां किराए पर बीवी मिलती है एक साल के लिए

  आज  दुनिया में शायद ही कोई क्षेत्र होगा जहां औरतों ने अपने हुनर से पहचान न बनाई हो। फिर भी भारत के कई जगहों में महिलाओं से जुड़ी कुप्रथाएं आज भी चली आ रहीं है। कुछ प्रथाएं तो ऐसी हैं, जिनके बारे में सुनकर हर कोई हैरत में पड़ जाए कि क्या सच में ऐसा होता है! आज हम आपको मध्यप्रदेश और गुजरात के कुछ गावों में मानी जाने वाली एक ऐसी प्रथा के बारे में बताने जा रहे हैं, जिसे सुनकर आप भी दंग रह जाएंगे। यहां किराए पर दी जाती है बीवी दरअसल, भारत के मध्यप्रदेश में एक ऐसी जगह है, जहां महिलाओं को किराए पर अपनी बीवी बनाने का रिवाज है।   जी हां, मध्यप्रदेश के शिवपुरी गांव में 'धड़ीचा प्रथा' काफी प्रचलित है।   इस प्रथा के मुताबिक अमीर आदमी इस गांव की लड़कियों को बतौर बीवी किराए पर ले सकते हैं लेकिन यह बंधन जिंदगीभर का नहीं होता।  यह सौदा महीने या साल के हिसाब से होता है। चाल-ढाल से लेकर खूबसूरती भी देखते हैं लोग यहां आने वाले लोग महिलाओं और लड़कियों की चाल-ढाल और खूबसूरती को भी देखकर सौदा करते हैं। इसके बाद एक साल के लिए उसकी शादी करा कर विदाई दी जाती है। अब प्रशासन के खौफ के कारण यह दबे-छुपे

तोता पालने पर जेल जाओगे , कैद में रखना crime, Parrot Caging

  Crime Under Section 49,51 Of  Wild Life Protection act  तोता पालना तो देश में कॉमन है, ऐसे में उसको पिंजड़े में रखना भी अपराध है? वाइल्डलाइफ एक्ट के मुताबिक,  तोते या किसी अन्य पक्षी को पिंजड़े में कैद करके रखना और उससे किसी भी तरह का लाभ लेने के लिए प्रशिक्षण देना कानूनन अपराध है । भारत में कानून इजाजत नहीं देता कि किसी भी पक्षी को कैद करके रखा जाए। आम तौर पर नागरिक तोतों को पालतू पक्षी मानते हैं लेकिन वन्यजीव अधिनियम 1972 की धारा-4 के तहत इसे या किसी भी अन्य पक्षी को पिंजरे में कैद रखना या पालना गैरकानूनी है। वन्य प्राणी संरक्षण अधिनियम 1972 के अंतर्गत तोता को पालना या पिंजरे में कैद करना दंडनीय अपराध है। यदि किसी व्यक्ति ने तोता पाल रखा हो या उसे पिंजरे में कैद रखा हो तो वन विभाग के नजदीकी कार्यालय में सुपुर्द कर दें। देश भर में तोतों की करीब एक दर्जन प्रजातियां मौजूद हैं और सभी संरक्षित हैं। नियमानुसार तोतों को पालने के लिए वन विभाग की अनुमति जरूरी होती है, लेकिन उन्हें पिंजरे में बंद करने वाले यह अनुमति नहीं लेते हैं। लोग शौकिया तौर पर पिंजरों में रंग-बिरंगे पक्षियों को घरों में

  WITHOUT GENERAL DIARY NUMBER YOUR COMPLAINT HAVE NO VALUE AND IT MEANS THAT YOUR COMPLAINT IS NOT IN RECORD.... A general diary (GD) entry or a daily diary entry is made when any kind of complaint is lodged and the police enter the details in their records. Thereafter, if the police believe that there is some prima facie evidence of a cognizable offense being committed, it is registered as an FIR.
