Conversation - 2

Conversation - 2 India is full of corruption and its judicial system is also not away from it. Victims are victimized by law keeper who make mockery of the system. Following conversation will shed some light on how law resides in pocket of those who have money.

Inside a state high court:
Public Prosecutor: Your owner he was drunk when he was driving his car,he crushed those innocent people sleeping on pavement. They want justice Sir! Hang him.
Defence Lawyer: Sir! He was not driving that car ,he was not in the town that day.
Public Prosecutor : Sir! I have eye-witnesses against him.
After that days' proceedings,in public prosecutor's chamber:
Defence Lawyer: Why you are stretching this case,tell me how much money do you want?
Public Prosecutor(Yawning): You are so much intelligent,even though you took so much time in understanding the case.You have wasted so much time of the court. Now give one million each for three witnesses and only ten millions for me in which I will adjust w…

Shopping at Cashkaro.com

Shopping at CashKaro.com


I am very lazy person and I also don't want to go to busy market places that's why I often shop online for the things I need like clothes,shoes,gadgets,etc. I uses sites like Myntra.com,Flipkart,Jabang.com,etc. These sides keeps good products and give heavy discounts also. But what if you get cash back and coupons for shopping from these sites. Yes this is not an idea but reality in the form of cashkaro.com.
I came across this site recently and discovered that they give cash back to customers for shopping from leading online stores through their site. I checked various offers and cash back schemes than I decide to make an estimate of the amount saved if shopped through cashkaro.com from about rupees 10,000. They give Rs 180 cash back on every myntra.com order and 30% off on order above Rs 1599 that means total Rs 600 saved if shopped for Rs 2000 and got Rs 180 as cash back from cashkaro.com.
Similarly in 10,000 rupees one would save Rs 3000 and an ext…

Suraksha(Safety) Tips

Suraksha(Safety) Tips

I live in Delhi the capital of India which has also became crime capital of the country for daily hosting one or the other kind of crimes. Rape,murders,snatching,theft you name a crime and we have it but that doesn't mean one should stop living here or those who wants to come here for study,work should stop coming here.

Natural Growth

Natural Growth


It's a well-known fact from ages that massage helps in growth of a child. Elderly people in homes always advice new mothers to massage their babies for speedy growth and strong bones. It is a traditional practice in many families for rearing a child.  Many studies conducted on this subject suggests that massage reduce the number of illness in child,skin-to-skin contact helps stimulate brain development in babies, it induces a better sleep and most importantly it brings mother and child more closer to each other.

I have seen my sisters,my sister-in-law (brother's wife) massaging their babies and in doing so they used to interact with them which builds their connection stronger,moreover both babies and mothers feel relaxed and enjoy this personal time. I still remember that when my sister first visited our home with her newborn son,she send me to buy Dabur Lal Tail for massaging her child. When I questioned why only Dabur Lal Tail than she told me that this is th…

An Immune India

An Immune India 

According to an analysis published in the medical journal 'Lancet,' private expenditure on health in India is close to 78% and almost 39 million people in India are pushed to poverty because of ill-health every year. It is also said that nations with less expenditure on medical facilities develop faster than those nations which spend more on medical bills.

Earlier people used to get pure fruits and vegetables,their diets were good and had a set eating pattern which helps them in developing healthy and immune body. This is completely transformed in today's competitive world where in fast paced life one thing that suffers the most is the health because nutritional demand of our body is not fulfilled as a result our immune system becomes weak and we fall sick more often.

Same is the case with children,during their growth period where they need maximum nutrition to develop a healthy immune system there eating habits don't contributes to it and hence every…

Delhi: My Suggestions

Delhi: My Suggestions
I have raised several issues which need to be tackle in My Delhi Manifesto. These are the issues which act as obstacle for Delhi in becoming a city which can give competition to cities like New York,London,Paris,etc. All problems have some solutions and for problems about a city like Delhi government agencies and people living here have to work together for better results.Below I will discuss probable solutions to the problems raised by me:

First problem which I highlighted in my manifesto is the parking problem.Most apartments and societies have parking of their own,the main parking problem arises in markets and colonies. Parks other than those in the green zone or those parks which are encroached should be used as parking sites in such areas. Multilevel parking should be constructed in market areas as already used in Sarojini Nagar Market. Illegal construction of temples,shrines should be checked on sides of the road as they block parking spaces and creates tr…

My Delhi Manifesto

My Delhi Manifesto

Delhi being the capital of India is already in the league of world-class cities. The high-rise buildings for residential and commercial purposes,Delhi Metro Rail service,network of flyovers and underpasses,twenty-four hour water and electricity,easy reach to educational and medical services,etc.are the things which make it to the top-level.
But there are still many problems faced by this city which need to be tackle on an urgent basis. I will like to see following changes in coming years:
1.Parking: Delhi sold the most number of cars daily in the world but space to park these vehicles is hard to get and most of them remained parked on roads which in turn creates the problem of traffic jam. This problem should be at the top of priority list.
2.Accountability: Projects are sanctioned,work on them starts but no body knows when it will end. These unfinished projects are headache for local people as they creates difficulty in commuting and becomes reason for many accident…

"Never in my life I had thought of this in the Amazon forest where I was several times before also for my photography assignments. They have imprisoned me about seven days ago but today I knew it was my last day there because they are performing the same rituals which they did while sacrificing my assistant and then eating him." A search team found that inscribed on a rock which was enough to understand the fate of wildlife photographer Andre Azkaban and his assistant Farhan Qureshi. Soon wild people encircled search party also while they were looking on that rock.

Cyclone Phailin

Cyclone Phailin
Cyclone Phailin is a tropical cyclone formed in Gulf Of Thailand in October 2013. It developed and eye and became half the size of India as it reached the Indian Ocean. It affected the coastal areas of Thailand,Myanmar and India including Andaman and Nicobar Islands. It was predicted by Indian Meteorological Department that this cyclone was much bigger and intense than cyclone Katrina which hit United States Of America in the year 2005 and thus devastation caused by it would be much higher.
But first time in the history of India,state government agencies along with NDMA (National Disaster Management Authority) were prepared after IMD's (Indian Meteorological Department) warning. IMD's predictions were also proved true which in itself is a big achievement because most of its prediction about weather made by them went wrong.The reason behind that is Japan Meteorological Agency was also monitoring this tropical depression, anyways this is another point of discuss…

Truth Always Wins

Truth Always Wins
Navratra marks the beginning of festive season in India. These nine days ends with Vijaydakshmi which is celebrated as Dussehra and Durga Puja in different part of India,Nepal,Bangladesh and many other countries with Hindu population.

Both these festivals i.e. Durga Puja and Dussehra epitomizes the victory of good over evil. Dussehra marks the victory of Lord Rama over Ravana the evil king of Lanka who kidnapped his wife Sita whereas Goddess Durga's victory over the evil buffalo demon Mahishasura is celebrated as Durga Puja. Both these stories confirms that how stronger the evil may become in the end truth will prevail.

Effigies of Ravana are burned on Dusshera day to symbolize the fate of evil. These festivals make our believe stronger that if one follows the path of truth he may face many difficulties but one's efforts don't go in vain and victory is inevitable. On this day we wish to have the courage to follow the idealistic path shown by Lord Rama wh…

Learning Colors Of Life

Learning Colors Of Life" A child is born.................rainbow color thrive."

This poem describes different stages of life with colors. Each color has its qualities and signifies one or the thing. With this poem I have used that color symbolism to connect it to different stages of life. 
When a child is born he or she don't know anything neither the goodness,nor the evilness of the world. A child is not contaminated with impurities of this world much like the color white which is pure. White is linked to God or heaven because of the purity it signifies. It is peaceful much like an innocent child.
When in adolescence one is full of energy and joy same as color yellow which is used in this poem to describe that stage of life where one is careless about this world,weaves dreams and is free to do anything which one wants. Color yellow denotes this happiness and imagination. Similarly color red denotes passion and love which one carries in teenage. The age of dreams,where …

Rhymed Confusion

Rhymed Confusion Kapil and Riya were among those rare husband and wife which never fights or argue. They almost adjust with each other on matters of difference. Riya once said during their romantic conversation that she would prefer to die than hear some bitter words from him. Kapil at that time said,"we will never fight darling and if ever (may god forbid) any argument occurs we will resolve it by talking to each other politely." Since than they avoid circumstances which leads to quarrel between them.

But life did not follow our commands and sometimes its inevitable to bypass certain things. One day while cleaning the house Riya threw papers into garbage without checking them. Those papers were very important for Kapil and he might face humiliation in office for his negligence. In anger he forget all his promises and bombarded her with missiles from his mouth enough to start river of tears from her eyes. She went into the bedroom crying and locked it from inside.

Name Of Helplessness Is Mahatma Gandhi

Name Of Helplessness Is Mahatma Gandhi
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi or Mahatma Gandhi was a face synonymous with Indian Independence struggle. The direction of the independence movement was changed as soon as he entered in Indian arena from South Africa where he fought for the rights of non white people. His efforts unified whole Indian Independence Movement under single leadership of Congress party working in his guidance. 
At one point during his period of emergence everyone in the country was certain for freedom but that is also the point where his helplessness first appeared. He called off non- cooperation movement after Chauri-Chaura incident where protesters retort to violence after police action. The man who send Indian soldiers to help British army in World War 1 suspended the almost successful movement on the ground of violence that too after police atrocities. Gandhi's failure to secure commutation of Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev's execution also revealed his hel…
