Journey

Journey


After reading spiritual books,listening spiritual teachers he started considering all relations,all things in this world futile. He wanted to meet god and for that he went to a journey to sacred places. He left no place and traveled every pilgrimage regardless to any religion.As much he travel his anxiety increased more and he was unable to find god. He found no result in his meetings with different priests,maulvis,pandits,etc. One day he encountered a hermit who told him to go back home because god was there only. He returned without understanding his meaning.

When he reached home he saw his mother and father in very pathetic condition without him. He used to be the sole earner of the family without him they were unable to fed themselves properly owing to their limited resources. He cried after seeing them in such condition." How I can find God leaving my parents in this condition. To make them comfortable in this age was my first duty, I was running from that to have God?" He hugged both of them and apologized for his wrong doing.

He had spent all his savings in this traveling to search god. He would start again his journey of life. But now he was certain that he need not to travel the world to search god. They were with him. 

One can't get god by hurting others,Bulle Shah once said that :
                                        
                                        मस्जिद ढा दे ,मंदिर ढा दे ,ढा दे जो कुछ दिसदा,
पर किसी दा दिल न ढावीं,रब दिलान विच वसदा। 

Break down mosque,temple and everything in sight,
But don't break any one's heart, God in it resides.  

So travel you inner self to have a glimpse of God and don't hurt others.

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.

Braid Cutting - Truth or Rumor?

Mysterious braid (choti) cutting incidents has happened in Rajasthan, Haryana and Delhi where women mostly around 50 years of age has their braids cut without their knowledge by some invisible source causing fear among women in these areas. Women also fell unconscious during the time of braid cutting which left them clueless about the attacker and made the incident mysterious. Police who have recorded the statements of victims deny any black magic involved in this which is rumored in the video circulated in social media groups. They are asserting that some miscreants are behind the incident.

I heard this news around a month ago from someone whose relatives live in Rajasthan. The incident was not in news at that time, I denied him saying that these are rumors or acts of miscreants and I still believe miscr…

Naive Traveler : City of Nawabs - Lucknow

Naive Traveler : City of Nawabs - Lucknow


Lucknow is known as The City of Nawabs the royal ruler of the city which gave it culinary & cultural identity like the way of talking I noticed while interacting with the people. The place is beautiful and has many things which can attract tourists to visit this city but I don’t find it tourist friendly as I observed in the other cities I visited like Agra,Jaipur, Dehradun,etc. As we came out of the station, there were no tourist autos or taxis available for city sightseeing thus left you unaware of what to do.
If we haven’t researched about the places and things to eat we couldn’t explore the city the way we did.

With our knowledge of places to visit and to eat, we first hire a bus bust to the Chowk area where we found Rahim’s Hotel for famous RAHIM KI NIHARI-KULCHA. Nihari is a breakfast non-vegetarian dish available in both Buffalo & Goat meat. Its taste was totally different from what I have tested it in Delhi and the Kulcha was he…
