Population Boom

Population Boom



We all know about the Spain train crash which kills about 80 people on Wednesday through media reports,this incident ignited another thought in me about our country. This Spanish train was carrying only 247 people in its peak time i.e for the pilgrimage destination Santiago de Compostela which is a very rare situation for such pilgrimage in India.

During festive seasons for Chatt Puja in Bihar or for Kumbh Mela in Allahabad our train runs with out of capacity passengers which carry thousands sitting inside as well as outside on top of the trains.A train carrying only 247 passengers may appear a joke for us because we see much more people only in a single carriage of a train. This is not because we have very few trains,our railway system is one of the biggest in the world but the problem lies in the fact that we are second most populated country in the world.

Our population is increasing rapidly and soon we will overtake China to be the most populated country in the world. With ever increasing population all arrangements becomes short,our resources are burdened with over population. We are now short of land,water and other such basic necessities of life due to which we excessively use our natural resources disturbing our flora and fauna without giving a thought for the future. Ever increasing population is burden for the nation and hindrance in our development. This is the reason that we have so many people die out of hunger,youth is unemployed,literacy rate is below average,malnutrition and many other problems.

There is a need to create awareness about this problem among the masses,programmes run by government to control population boom should be implemented more strictly and to the villages of India. With population increases hands with hands increases demands and when demand crosses the thresh hold system collapses. The slogan of "we two our two" of eighties and nineties should now be changed to "we two our one".

  1. Increase in population doesn't commensurate with the resources we have. Something needs to be done to control the mushroom of population before it's too late.

  2. The only solution to population problem is education and proper awareness among people. Unfortunately, at this stage India doesn't seem to have any hope to keep a check on population!

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…

Burning Bengal

Burning Bengal 
When the nation is in a fix with its relations with China the home is also not right as Bengal is burning from two sides. You can say that I am picking the topic late but I don’t want to spread the rumor without confirming all the sources which is giving news information. Here I should mention that don’t overreact on social media hypes until news are coming from authentic news agencies.
Basirhat communal violence which triggered with a controversial Facebook post by a class 11th student took an ugly turn when Muslim mobs started vandalizing properties of the Hindus but this is only the half story. The calm which prevailed after Thursday is revealing the story that many Muslims saved their Hindu friends and neighbors by confronting the mob. Hindu-Muslim groups are now helping those who have financial losses in shops/business to stand again by helping them with money (Read Indian Express front page of 9th July 2017). Locals knew that mob that attacked in their area were …

Naive Traveler : Delhi Darshan # 4

Naive Traveler : Delhi Darshan # 4


Delhi as we all know is habitat and destroyed several times in different eras since it always remained the central city for each empire. As a result of these variant rulers from ancient times to the British era, Delhi enjoys the status of being witness to their grandeur and glory. Thus we the people of modern day India are privileged to see and feel that aura and ambiance. This was my fourth trip of sightseeing in Delhi and believe me I need many more days to explore the Delhi to its fullest. 
This time I chose the places known for its haunted experiences like Bhooli Bhatiyar, Feroz Shah Kotla Fort, Rajon Ki Baoli in Mehrauli Archaeological Park, Giyas-ud-Din Tughlaq Tomb  and Tughlaqabad Fort.The scorching heat of next day of heat digested all our energy so we also visited Indira Gandhi Memorial an all air conditioned museum which rejuvenated us. Since it was not far from Safdurjung Tomb we also give a visit to that place also. 
Now talking about m…
