Lack Of Humans

Lack Of Humans



This Sunday a man in Jaipur learnt so many things in less than an hour after he with his family met with an accident in Jaipur road tunnel. First thing he learned was that it's our duty to follow traffic rules and not of traffic police to make us follow them. Two wheelers are not permitted inside that tunnel road where accident took place,moreover no one was wearing any helmet,this resulted in death of his wife and an infant baby when a speeding truck hit them inside the tunnel. But traffic police let him go inside the tunnel without helmet and also speeding truck was not stopped.

Actually accident was not the main reason for these deaths,the victims remain unattended for about forty minutes even when so many vehicles were passing by the site looking at the incident as mere spectators,the footage of incident on news channals make me recall the lines of a song from hindi classic Pyasa(1957) "Jinhe naaz hai hind par wo kahan hain",which means "where are those who are proud of India". How cruel is to see someone loosing her life?How inhuman is to let an infant die? Kanhaiya Lal Raigar was the name of that man whose wife and child was died. He was caught on camera crying for help along with his four year old son after the tragedy but sadly no one come forward.His cries were ignored by the motorist and they passed by without stopping. Someone came after 40 minutes and helped him in calling police and relatives ,police took the victims to the hospital but it was too late.

Is this the same behavior we wants other to do when we are in that position? Even animals don't leave some one wounded,they surrounded it lick its wounds and make all efforts they can do for its recovery.But this shows that we are worse than animals. People in India die everyday of hunger,lack of medical facilities,property disputes,etc. Don't let people die due to lack of humans and humanity.

  2. I watched the gory incident on the TV. It's heart-rending. We always shirk our responsibility to be humane in situation like the one narrated in the post. My heart goes to the victims.

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…

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…

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…
