Rape In Delhi

Rape In Delhi



We all get angry when things don't happen as it should be and than take out our frustrations on those who are responsible for that same as angry birds do with pigs in famous game series. We throw ourselves here and there, while in games it clear the stage but in real life it creates hurdle in our further movement and many times the main reason behind our anger go unnoticed.

Here I am talking about the rape incidents happened and happening in capital of India Delhi and futile demonstrations that follows. While people in anger protesting for death penalty for rape accused some political parties jump in them for political gains and thus turn the issue to some another level and then they blame each other, ask for resignations and so on. In this real issue get lost. Rape is not a Delhi problem but a problem for India,incidents happening in other parts of country are also heinous and painful but they don't get sympathy of these political parties because media coverage is low there.

The solution is still not available,factors responsible for rape are ignored,society responsibility for incidents is zero,police training for such sensitive situations is not provided and some of us are indifferent to the conditions. In patriarchal societies women are soft targets,they are not treated as equal to men and lots of burden and responsibilities are attached to them only,unless women are treated as human beings they will remain target to such crimes. Javed Akhtar's statement in Rajya Sabha is right in saying that there are many forms of women other than a mother which should also get equal respect as given to a mother in our culture,tradition and country.

The lesson of gender equality should be taught in schools. A death penalty will only kill criminal but not his crime which will remain alive in society even after his death. A person committing rape must be aware  what shameful act he has done. There should be a social boycott of such peoples and they must face public insult. We should be aware and alert about people around us and there intentions. Police verification of tenants is must,community gathering should be there to know our neighbours and there should be talks in families about such issues.

  1. Capital punishment won't act as a deterrent to rapists. As you say, they should live to know what shameful he has done.

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…
