Young And Tired

Young And Tired


About a decade ago,debate over age of our politicians was in its full swing. Everybody wanted youth to be part of the politics so that a different political atmosphere prevail in the country. Things did change in these years and more and more youth politicians emerge in the scene like Rahul Gandhi,Akhilesh Yadav,Aditya Thackeray,Sachin Pilot,Umar Abdullah,Anurag Thakur,etc. 

All of these leaders in present time holds an important place in their respected parties or in central or state governments. Nation hoped for change through these leaders but they too got struck in this rotten political system and instead of cleaning it they became a part of it. Rahul Gandhi who is projected as future Prime Minister of India by his party has lost touch with the masses by keeping himself silent on many important issues and at times when he speak at certain occasions his speech turned out to be of a newbie.

Akhilesh Yadav who is now Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh has lost control over his government, he appears to run government on his father's commands,law and order situation in UP is worst,recent communal riots in Muzaffarnagar is one more example of his failure. Umar Abdullah the chief minister of J & K often give statements which give way to tensions in the valley, Anurag Thakur the head of BJP's youth wing responded to the outrage by spouting the retrograde ideas of the RSS on the difference between "India" and "Bharat" on the issue of gender.

Varun Gandhi another BJP youth leader was booked for communal speech during his election campaign in last elections. Sachin Pilot,Jyotiaditya Sindia,Milind Deora,Jatin Prasad,etc never came out to speak against corruption in their party.

All these youth leaders belongs to political dynasties,either their father or mother was a politicians before hence they are also carrying burden of political lineage, other youth politicians don't get any chance to represent government either in state or central level due to these heavy weight candidates. All these leaders don't speak against their party lines for what is right or wrong. In spite of so many youth politicians India is still waiting for fresh, reformist youth politicians which can bring change in the political system. We need young and active leaders to lead from the front and not young and tired to further carry this cripple political system. These leaders must have voice of their own and should have courage to speak beyond party line and act as to become a role model for young generation.

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

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

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…
