Midnight Visit

Midnight Visit

Tarun the editor of weekly magazine "The Storm" called her inside the board room," Here she is ladies and gentleman her fearless reporting on issue of women safety had stir the whole nation," everyone present in the room started applauding her. She was standing with confident and feeling proud to be part of such a magazine which always raised the plights of countryman in such a way that government falls on their knees to take an action, she was feeling happy to be praised in such a way by his boss, " This time,she raised the bar to the point that we have to work harder to match her. Well Done Sanjana. Congratulations!"  Tarun also told her that she was going with him to Goa for a media event organised by their magazine.

Sanjana was excited not because she was going to Goa but a man like Tarun who was an inspiration for journalists has appreciated her work so much.It was a privilege for her to share the stage with him. Next day they reached to Goa and attended the event according to the schedule. It was a two-day event she would hardly get a chance to see the beauty of Goa but nonetheless she was satisfied to be part of the event. After the day's work she was very tired and fall asleep as soon as she reposed on bed in her room. She woke up with a knock on the door at midnight. It was Tarun at the door who wanted to discuss something about next day's programme at the event.

Next morning Sanjana was not her real self, she was indulged in the event but her excitement was diminished. It seemed that something was disturbing her but she remained quiet and not said anything to anyone. In the evening they were going back and things might sort out there.

After coming back she emailed managing editor Shoma of "The Storm" and alleged Tarun for sexual harassment and misconduct with her. She wrote that he came to her room at midnight and tried to gain sexual favors with her. Shoma after reading that mail discussed it with Tarun who unconditionally apologized to her for his misconduct and leaved his post of editor of "The Storm"  for six months. Soon the news spread in media like a forest fire. The man who used to shake others with his Storm was himself facing the storm.

It was also found that the magazine which was fighting for social issues and women's rights was not following Vishakha Guidelines in their own organisation. Self action without any enquiry by Tarun was also criticized by experts in media reports. In such cases women usually prefer to keep quiet and not to report the incident as this may lead to obstacles in their carrier but this time,she raised the bar by again fearlessly reporting the incident. After media reports police also came into action and arrested Tarun for raping his colleague. He claimed that he was being framed by political forces in this case.

Nobody knows what was the truth behind the incident and that midnight visit except Sanjana and Tarun and it's definite that one of them was telling a lie. Investigations are on thus I leave the end of the story to your imagination. If Sanjana is right and he had raped her than he must be punished and if Tarun is right and he was being framed by some political forces than the truth must come out and those forces should be punished along with Sanjana.

Note: This story is a work of fiction inspired by true incident.

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…

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…

My Brother,My Role Model

My Brother,My Role Model

In the course of life it is not the one man or one moment which inspires to be better and the best but anyone you come across in your life teaches you something valuable. 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. My father was shattered, it was at that time my mother and brother stood for him. My brother leaved his study and started learning some work. 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…
