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…

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…
