Tandoor Kand( Naina Sahni Murder Case)

Tandoor Kand ( Naina Sahni Murder Case)



Among the many incidents that occurred in 90,s India and caught the attention of the nation and the world was Tandoor Kand or Naina Sahni murder case. Naina Sahni a congress party worker was shot dead by her husband Sushil Sharma a congress youth leader MLA. 

He killed his wife by firing two shots from his pistol in his house on suspicion of her illicit relationship with her co-worker. He then took the body to the restaurant called Bagiya and tried to disposed off the body by chopping and burning it into the restaurant's tandoor (clay oven) with the help of restaurant's manager. Two patrolling constables came to know about the incident when they visited the place after seeing the smoke and getting smell of flesh burning. Manager was arrested by the police and Sushil Sharma surrendered later on 10th July 1995 eight day after the incident.

This incident grabbed the massive media coverage on being one of its kind. The in humanness showed by him in disposing off the dead body and breach of confidence made it to the list of the rarest of the rare case in the eye of law and he was sentenced to death in 2003 by the lower court,the decision which was also upheld by the high court. He filed a petition in Supreme Court against the verdict, the decision of which came today on 8th October 2013 which converted his death sentence into imprisonment till death on the ground that Sharma didn't have a criminal antecedent and there is a possibility of reform of him.

The verdict of The Supreme Court also confirmed that Indian judicial system believes in reform i.e to kill the crime and not the criminal. Moreover it will give the message that one should think twice before taking any action in the heat of the moment. He may be a big politician today had he not committed the crime then,all his future was ruined because he had not controlled his anger at that very instance.

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 substances however are not harmful a…

Amritsar & Wagah Border Trip

Amritsar & Wagah Border Trip


Amritsar is the city of Golden Temple the sacred pilgrimage for Sikhs. The area around is recently developed beautifully to promote tourism by renovating it with related themes and including some modern day structures which compliment the place nicely. Historical Jalianwala Bagh where Britishers fired mercilessly on innocent Indians also lies in that area and it now has a monument as a remembrance to those who killed in that massacre. Another important thing in the area is Partition Museum build inside Town Hall which encloses memories of partition with having things donated by people effected by the tragedy along with the historical accounts of that time. But photography is not allowed inside the museum. 






I also visited Ranjit Singh Panorama Museum which housed weapons of Ranjit Singh army and has some depictions of Raja Ranjit Singh's life through painting and models. There is also Gobindgarh Fort which you must visit for the 7D film on life of R…

These lessons we learn from them improves our lives and make us better making these men our role model whom we tries to imitate.

When I was a child my families financial condition was not very good. My father suffered a huge loss in his business. One or the other borrower queues daily at our door for their money while we didn't have enough money to afford even food.

He learned machine embroidery work in only four months for which others took a year or so to learn and then he started his own work with some financial support from my parents who at that time opened a grocery shop.

I was very young at that time but I still remembered that my brother ha…
