Diversions



Peter was flying in helicopter over the river where he first met Rebecca his wife a vivacious girl full of life.

This was the love at first sight which culminated into marriage unopposed by their parents.

But the diversions in their relation came when she fell in love with his friend who used to visit them regularly even in Peter's absence.

He was trying to escape from the town after killing his wife and his friend with his licensed pistol when police chased his car in helicopter and arrested him by bursting his tire with a gun shot.

Diversions from the path of love closed the way towards solutions.

Ek Paar Modi Sarkaar

Ek Paar Modi Sarkar


Narender Modi is completing one year in office as Prime Minister (PM) of India on 26th May. This one year is not less than a roller caster ride for citizen of this country for having experiences which they haven't in their entire life. The Babu's day out with brooms on 2nd October which have everything except Mahatma Gandhi for whose birthday this day is remembered in India, restless and respect-less teachers on teachers day, Obama show on Republic Day are some arrangements by this government.

The aim of the Modi Sarkaar in this last year was to destroy value of special days by introducing photo sharing opportunities for celebrities in events like Swach Bharat, the agenda of growth which was the main point during his campaigning days appears missing in this second set of campaigning on the foreign soils among NRI's. Manufacturing sector, Infrastructure sector, retail growth, production, employment are facing lowest ever figures. Nothing done for farmers, laborers, middle class and lower middle class except for fake promises. MNREGA (Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act) which helped in raising the living standard of rural Indians is on verge of extinction with no work granting under this scheme. 

The Naseebwala PM has crop damage due to excessive rains, Kashmir Flood, recent earthquake in Bihar in his naseeb for the nation. His law changing abilities have resulted in the changes in Land Acquisition Law, Whistle blower Act, Real Estate Act, etc for the worse for citizen of India. He is only self praising himself. Their is only one man in the government and all other ministers are worth puppets in his hands with no real decision making ability. The minorities are feeling insecure under his rules with rise in hate incidents even at places which never experienced such incidents, attacks on minority places of worship, relating cow slaughtering to particular community, Ghar Wapasi, Love Jihad are feathers in his cap for the first year.

He is promoting his foreign trips (18 countries in one year) as a step towards Make In India initiative while statistics shows a decline in foreign investment in the last one year instead while these trips costs more than Rs 600 crores to the nation and almost about 800 crores were wasted on government marketing. 12 months of his demanded 60 months have passed in turmoil for the nation. I will pray for goodwill of our country in coming 48 months. God Bless India. 

Do respond in the comment section if you think I have ignored his achievement in this one year because Jan Dhan has 60% accounts with zero balance, his recent insurance schemes are just for name having no use for the masses, Ganga action plan is ridiculed thrice by the Supreme Court for not being effective. 

Note: If Mr Modi happened to read it by chance we all are proud to be Indians not for some party or some leader but for the rich heritage of our country based on love and respect for each other. Please concentrate on development if you wish for it.

Airtel users which are already privileged to have the India's largest and smartest network suited best for the smarphones now have the opportunity to gain more out of it by using My Airtel App which is available for all smartphone operating system (Android, IOS, Windows, etc). After download a one time registration code is sent for mobile number verification after which the app is ready to use. This app is the simplest way to manage all your Airtel services through your handset. The three key features of this app which I liked the most and suits best to my life style are :

1. Airtel Surprises : Who don't like surprises? My Airtel App gives surprise coupons after every recharge that you do. You can redeem these coupons across categories like shopping, food, wellness, entertainment,etc. That means the recharge which you would do even if you don't get anything from it brings you offers from brands like PVR cinemas, Cafe Coffee Day, Flipkart, Amazon and many more such brands without any extra charges.

This feature is my favorite for providing convenience of doing these important task without going anywhere.

Book Review : Capturing Wildlife Moments In India


Capturing Wildlife Moments In India is the coffee table book by Ashok Mahindra of The Hem Chand Mahindra Foundation. It contains 120 photographs of animals and birds of India, photographed from visits to over 30 parks,sanctuaries and other locations. It is being published by Oxford University Press(OUP) & Bombay Natural History Society(BNHS).The book will be available at most of the major retail outlets across India and also through online retail sites like Amazon, Flipkart etc.It will also be available for sale through the BNHS website and is priced at Rs.1450.



Cover : Half submerged Bengal Tiger is fascinating and captivating on the cover. This first image prepared you for the beauty of nature you are going to experience in this book. I can only imagine the hard work required for such precision and patience in capturing this image. Full marks for the cover. The rear image of a peacock is also superb.




Content: This book contains 120 photographs of animals and words showing rich heritage and range of wildlife and its habitats in India. I am allowed to show few images from the book which make you aware the kind of work in the book. It contains images of almost all animals and birds species unique to India which includes Bengal Tiger, Asiatic Elephant, Rhesus Macaque, Little Egret, White Ibis, Crested Serpent Eagle,etc. Ashok Mahindra have covered almost all National Park and Bird sanctuaries of India like Corbett National Park - Uttarakhand, Ranthambore National Park - Rajasthanto, National Chambal Sanctuary - U.P, Bharat Bird Sanctuary - Rajasthan, to have these images.




Aim : The aim of this book is to create awareness of the real danger to wildlife in India and to promote the preservation of that wildlife by encouraging youngsters to appreciate beauty of nature so that they can understand the importance of forests and wildlife. We often see and appreciate wildlife on Discovery and National Geographic Channels and wish to see such animal by visiting Africa without knowing the natural beauty of our own country. This book brings you closer to Indian wildlife.

Verdict : This book is a must for every Indian household to inculcate in our children the interest in wildlife and nature which is must for the preservation of wildlife.

Rating : I would give it 5/5 for the dedication and quality.
