Standing Ovation

Standing Ovation


Dikshit returned to his native place to meet a man without whom he would not be a famous singer and music composer. His family never liked his inclination towards music and singing. He was banned from singing at home. At that time an old beggar who used to sit at the corner of the road was his only companion. He sat by his side and sang with him. He praised his voice and encouraged him to sing more.

His encouragement made Dikshit to participate in school singing competition in front of a famous music director who liked his voice so much that gave him a chance in his next movie project. After that Dikshit never looked back. Initially his parents protested against his singing but later when they saw his fan following they also supported him. In all these years of fame he never forget the man who gave fire to the spark in him.He was the one who told him that music is life, an inert body starts moving when gets the sound of heartbeat. 

As soon as he reached there he went to that road corner where that beggar used to sit but he was not there. He came to know of his address from a nearby shop. He visited his home without wasting a second. When he reached there he found he was not there also,in fact he was no more in this world,he was dead. He met his son and said to him," Your father was my first audience he used to listen me daily and praised my singing which encouraged me to sing further." " But how was this possible my father was deaf from his birth." That was a shock for Dikshit, a deaf man was the reason of the standing ovation he was receiving. Sometimes talented people get lost in the darkness of this world without getting their real worth for the lack of encouragement. That old beggar understood his love for singing and gave him courage to face the world.

  3. Simply beautiful. Hats off to the old beggar. There is an amazing and overflowing happiness in making others happy, despite our own situations. Reminds me of another story where a blind man encouraged his fellow room mate.

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…

Braid Cutting - Truth or Rumors?

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.
The video allegedly claims that a woman is on a mission to cut 1008 women braids in order to get invisibility power according to a black magic ritual. 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…
