The Wounded Man

The Wounded Man


She came home and rummaged in the drawer." I think it is there!" Akansha was a nurse in a private nursing home. Before the end of her shift a patient came with a wounded knee, after dressing his wounds she gave him a tetanus vaccine. It was then she saw that tattoo in his biceps.She knew that she had seen that tattoo before! If only she could remember where, she would be able to clear her doubts.That was a peculiar symbol which might donate an organisation or something. She was searching for a magazine where she thought she had seen that symbol.

She was living alone in this rented house for about three years. Her parents died when she was a child, someone send her to an orphanage where she got education. After getting the job in the nursing home she left the orphanage and rented that house. " Yes there it is?" She quickly turned pages to see that symbol. It was a symbol of a secret society which was believed to be worshiper of Satan. There was not much information about them but it was rumored that followers of this group could bring the dead people back.

She always longed for a family ,a caring mother, a loving father." What has god given me? He always took things from me. Today I am alone only because of Him. I am ready to worship Satan. I want my parents back." All years of loneliness passed through her eyes,how she remained devoid of love which was her right. She had no friends ,no relatives not anyone to whom she could say her own. A boy who loved her also went away few years back leaving her alone again.

She decided to talk to that man when he would come again to change his bandages. He came in the evening, when doctor went away after seeing his wound she spoke to him in a low voice," I know you are member of a secret organisation." The patient looked at her suspiciously . She pointed towards her tattoo and said that she knew about it." This tattoo!" He laughed," I don't know to which secret organisation or society it belongs, I have selected this design from so many design shown to me." She became upset and quietly leaved the room.

The wounded man felt very bad and went to her. She told her about that tattoo," I wants to join those people, I want my parents back." " That's impossible but I can give you parents." Glow again came in her eyes. He told her to come with him.He looked a good man,she had seen him many times with doctor before this incident so she became ready to go with him. She thought that to maintain the secrecy of that society he didn't want to talk about that tattoo and society in nursing home. He would show his magic at his place.But he took her to an old age home.

" I am also an orphan,lost every single relation in course of life,but one day I visit here when I was feeling depressed and you won't believe how lonely they are,they were left by those for whom they have spent their whole life when they need them most.I have found my parents in them and I am sure you will also find them." She became a regular visitor there after that day,she found solace in their company. That wounded man was Akash soon they started meeting each other regularly ,their parents of old age home arranged their love marriage. They lived happily now with their adopted parents, that tattoo really gave him parents.

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…

Lynch Raj

Lynch Raj
An aged man keeping meet in home, a milkman transporting cattle for milking, rumors of child kidnapper, a policeman conducting his duties or you just innocent Muslim boys going home for Eid, this give enough reason to criminal mobs to lynch innocents without any respect and fear for the law. From last three years since the Modi government came in power these lynching of innocent people by mob has increased manifolds many of which are conducted by radicalized Hindu youths in the name of protecting ‘Mother Cow’ and their tradition forgetting about innocent humans they have killed in this process. Latest incident happened with three Muslim brothers going home in a train from Delhi to Mathura after Eid shopping in Delhi. A group of 10-12 men between 7-8 pm attacked them and stabbed one Junaid to death while two others are battling for life in Delhi hospital. The brutality with which they were attacked and the hatred filled in the criminal mob can be judge by seeing the blood pai…

Naive Traveler : Delhi Darshan # 4

Naive Traveler : Delhi Darshan # 4


Delhi as we all know is habitat and destroyed several times in different eras since it always remained the central city for each empire. As a result of these variant rulers from ancient times to the British era, Delhi enjoys the status of being witness to their grandeur and glory. Thus we the people of modern day India are privileged to see and feel that aura and ambiance. This was my fourth trip of sightseeing in Delhi and believe me I need many more days to explore the Delhi to its fullest. 
This time I chose the places known for its haunted experiences like Bhooli Bhatiyar, Feroz Shah Kotla Fort, Rajon Ki Baoli in Mehrauli Archaeological Park, Giyas-ud-Din Tughlaq Tomb  and Tughlaqabad Fort.The scorching heat of next day of heat digested all our energy so we also visited Indira Gandhi Memorial an all air conditioned museum which rejuvenated us. Since it was not far from Safdurjung Tomb we also give a visit to that place also. 
Now talking about m…
