Minority

Minority

This word is very common in India. But what this means? If we look at the dictionary meaning of this word this means a small number or part esp.a number that is less than half the whole number but in social and political sphere of the country it means privileges and vote bank. Each group or community states it self as minority to enjoy special grants and reservations in various government jobs and educational institutes,some presents themselves as being exploited for being in minority, so called majority in turn accuses injustice to them in providing special treatment to minority. Also there are so many minorities in India, religious minorities,cast based minorities, region based minorities,language based minorities and so on and there are also many political and non political representatives of these minorities which fought for there cause.

My purpose for writing this article is not to become another supporter to these groups but to mention another minority which is neglected and don't even have any representative. The honest citizen of country which actually suffered a lot. 

They are the people which care for nation,region,religion,family and everything else but there is no one to care for them. A honest person doesn't get a good job and if so others put difficulties in there honest functioning be it Satendra Dubey of Bihar, Zia Ul Huq of Uttar Pradesh,in education,administration ever where they all fall prey to the system who don't wants them to be loyal to there work and force them to be part of majority i.e. corrupt force. If we look at the other side of the issue lack of representation of such people is responsible for all other problems in the country today.

There is a need to think about this minority,these people don't come from somewhere else but among ourselves. I read a story in childhood which states that to be a true lover of country it is not necessary to be in the armed forces or lead the country but to do our works sincerely and  honestly.If each one of us will play our part properly in any field with which we are associated honestly than there will be a majority in the country ,the majority of honest people. Think of country before yourself in any action you take.

Bitter Bread

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway. These revelations are shocking and disturbing as all of us have eaten from one of these brands. It should also be noted that these two substances which are used to soften breads and enhance their color and texture namely potassium bromate and potassium iodate are banned in many countries of the world after a study conducted in the 90's. These substances however are not harmful a…

The Masked Life


I met with an accident few years back (precisely 10 years ago). It was dangerous and I came out of hospital in about ten days. Except a foot injury which needed dressing every week for around a year I was alright. But that what I and my family thought but as I few days past I realized problems of sore throat, running nose, itching eyes which were watering and initially it was difficult to even face a bright light. I was diagnosed with allergy from almost anything cold water, wind, dust, etc which increases in changing season. Doctor advised me to spend most time in homes and medicines were provided to control the allergy. It cured with time and now I only take single tablet daily to control my allergy. The doctor said to take it only when allergy symptoms appear but they comes out when I stop taking medicine. Now while researching about indoor air pollution I found what force me to take that tablet continuously even when I am mostly home-bound. 
We can avoid Indoor ai…

RIP Tom Alter
I am sure those who grew up in nineties are not unfamiliar with his name. Like many I also has his first image in my mind is of 'British Raj Ka Writer' in Doordarshan serial 'Zabaan Sambhaal Ke' where he played an Englishman writer who is learning Hindi. He was impressive in that role along with the other's worked in it. I later saw him in films like Charas, Karma, Kranti and films like that where he has played bad characters of Firangi (foreign) officer. He played these negative characters impressively and when you compare them with his comic role in Zabaan Sambhalke you will know his acting proves. 
I also remembered him as Mahaguru in popular superhero serial Shaktimaan but what inspired me about him later on in my life was his command on Hindi and Urdu. He recite shayaris and ghazals beautifully. I have seen performing him many time on television. I also knew he was a great theater actor but never got any chance to see him live on stage. His ghaz…
