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 accidents. There is no one accountable for delays,so this accountability should be set. 

3.Safety: This is the most important issue. No body wants to visit a city where there is no guarantee for life.
Old age people,women,small children,businessman,common man,no one is safe there. There is a need for safer Delhi.

4.Corruption: The boiling issue in the country is also the point of discussion in Delhi. There is not a single work which can be done in time without greasing the palm of any government official. From birth certificate to death certificate,from ration card to licence everything moves with money. Eradicating corruption is another issue to answer.

5.Medical Facility: Government hospitals are in pathetic condition and those new which are added to the list lacks many facilities. Private hospitals are costly and out of reach of common man. Better and cheap medical facility is a must.

6.Inflation: This issue gives sleepless nights to every Indian and so is the case with Delhi. Ever increasing prices disturbs daily budget of those which have limited means of earning. Control of inflation is necessary for a tension free life of people.

7.Population: Increasing population increases the demands,here in Delhi people who are born are not the only ones which add to the population but migrants from various states add up to the population and increases the demand and burden on existing resources. Migration issue needs to be answered.

Above mentioned issues requires proper government planning and execution. They obstruct are way in becoming a better and developed city.These issues should be part of political parties contesting coming election in Delhi.

This is My Delhi Manifesto in association with

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…

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

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…
