Suratgarh is a city and a municipality in Ganganagar district in the Indian state of Rajasthan. Akashwani Suratgarh broadcasts on 918 kHz with a 300 kw radio transmitter. It has been given the name "Cotton city channel".
Suratgarh was a significant arena of historical incidences in the ancient past. The city was once called Sodal. Around 3000 BC Suratgarh is believed to have been a lush, green place due to the presence of two big rivers, Sarasvati and Drishadvati. Present sand possessed various botanical and zoological species within the basins of chaste Sarasvati and Drishvati. The emergence of Kalibangan and Barod civilizations were facilitated by the geographical and environmental complements of the Sarasvati, and Suratgarh was a noteworthy testimony of this. The traces of ancient civilization near Rangmahal, Manaksaar and Amarpura show the historical significance of Suratgarh where Sarasvati civilization has receded after 1500 years of stability.
Suratgarh developed greatly under the rule of Maharaja Ganga Singh who built a hunting lodge at Suratgarh and ensured the connectivity of Suratgarh to train service. Hanumangarh and Bikaner came under the Suratgarh District when the district was established. Establishment of the Ganges canal in 1927 helped Suratgarh develop; it became a city after partition when various refugees from Pakistan came in and started settling there. Suratgarh Central State Farm was established in 1956, followed with the establishment of the Indira Gandhi Canal project and Central Animal Reproduction Farm in the 1960s. Meanwhile an air and military base station, Akashvani and various offices had been established. Suratgarh Thermal Power Station started working from 3 November 1998 and this laid down one more milestone in the progress of Suratgarh city.
It has a thermal power plant of 1500 MW and a PLF of 93%, which has won an award for one of the best-operated plants in India. The industry experienced acute growth with the construction of the thermal power plant and its residential buildings. Since then the industry has been growing quickly. With the reducing demands as a result of completion of the thermal power plant project, bricks from Suratgarh are now supplied to various parts of Rajasthan especially to the districts of Churu and Jhunjhunu.

God has given such a beautiful gift
That is our Earth
But what has happened
The Earth has been polluted
Oh! Why can’t we keep the earth clean
And save ourselves.
Earth is our life,
Without it we are not fine.
So take care of Earth,
And save it for your pleasure.
Save the Earth
And save yourself from being lost.
-Kreena Rao/ IX/ DH
Air Pollution
Air is one of the most important aspect that is required to survive. We breathe air thousands and millions of time in a day. If we will not breathe a single minute then we will die. The pollution of air due to over use of vehicles, etc. has led to this air being polluted. The pollution of air is a major problem rising all around the world. It is not only causing damage to environment but also causing a number of disease and major damage to National heritages and monuments. It is tit for tat, today we are not caring for environment but soon a day will come when environment will laugh on us and will not care for us. So it is better that we change with time otherwise time will change us. We should at least plant one tree in a year and care for it. I guarantee that soon 121 crore people of India will give rise to 121 crore trees in a year which will not only free us from pollution but also will give us fruits, paper, etc. So we should understand our duties and take steps towards it to save mother Earth and humanity.-Anumesh Rao/ IX/ GH

Mehandipur Balaji Mandir is a noted Hindu temple, mandir in Dausa district of Rajasthan, dedicated to the Hindu God Hanuman. The name Balaji is applied to Shri Hanuman in several parts of India because the childhood (Bala in Hindi or Sanskrit) form of the Lord is especially celebrated there. The temple is dedicated to Balaji (another name for Shree Hanuman Ji). Unlike similar religious sites it is located in a town rather than the countryside. Its reputation for ritualistic healing and exorcism of evil spirits attracts many pilgrims from Rajasthan and elsewhere. The old village Mehandipur is located nearby the small hill. The temple of Balaji built in mehandipur is very famous especially in northern part of India. Saturday and Tuesday are the busiest day in temple because these both are the days of hanumanji. Some other temples near by are anjani mata temple, kali mata at teen pahad, panchmukhi hanumanji, ganeshji temple at saat pahad, samadhi wale baba are some important temples in the mehandipur balaji.
The temple has been known for many years, for exorcism from evil spirits attachments and black magic or spells. In 2013, an international team of scientist, scholars and psychiatrists from Germany, Netherlands, AIIMS, New Delhi, and University of Delhi started a study to evaluate all aspects of treatment and rituals at the temple.
