No To Racism In India

No To Racism In India


                                     


India is known for its quality of amalgamation for years and centuries. Different people came here to make it their permanent home and their cultures and traditions have mixed with values of India so much that with time they have become indigenous part of our country. Another specialty of India is its varied geographical and climatic differences which make its people look different at different places unlike other places in the world where whole country experience almost similar environmental conditions as a result India in itself holds people having similarities with Chinese or African people. But does that change their identity as Indians?

A recent incident in the capital indicates to this black spot on our society. On 2014 January 30 Nido Taniam, an 18 year old Student from Arunanchal Pradesh died after being beaten up mercilessly by locals at a marketplace in the Lajpat Nagar area of Delhi. Nido Taniam was the son of Arunachal Pradesh Congress legislator Nido Pavitra. He was studying in Lovely Professional University, Jalandher. Before that incident another incident also happened in Delhi's Khirki Extension where Nigerian women were treated badly by group of people headed by Law Minister of Delhi Somnath Bharti. Recently a minister in Goa Dayanand Mandrekar was also involved in racist comments for Nigerian communities. Last year north eastern people were threatened in Karnataka by some groups. Such incidents bring us to the same league as those western countries where they differentiate people on the basis of their skin color and many times Indians residing in those countries also falls prey to such racists.

Such incidents in India are really very shameful. Above mention incident have media attention due to the involvement of ministers in it but what about those incidents which went unnoticed. North East Indians in different parts of the country face alienation due to their looks. Majority of people make fun of them, the reason behind it is again politics. Many local parties centralised their politics on local issues and in doing so they sow seed of hatred among masses for people of other part of the country, many such hate speeches for north Indians are on record by local leaders of Maharashra's local parties.

We have emerged into a free nation after facing so much discrimination, so such incidents not only break our unity but also weakens foundation of our country. 'We the people of India are one whatever our caste,color,region or religion.' These words should be part of our thoughts otherwise politicians take advantage of these weaknesses to gain votes for or against a particular issue. Just remember we all are some and enjoys similar rights and opportunities instead of fighting with each other we should fight to get those opportunities which are deprived to us. INDIA IS ONE FROM KASHMIR TO INDIRA POINT( A & N ISLANDS) AND FROM ARUNANCHAL TO GUJARAT.

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…

The Masked Life

The Masked Life


I met with an accident few years back (precisely 10 years ago). It was dangerous and I came out of hospital in about ten days. Except a foot injury which needed dressing every week for around a year I was alright. But that what I and my family thought but as I few days past I realized problems of sore throat, running nose, itching eyes which were watering and initially it was difficult to even face a bright light. I was diagnosed with allergy from almost anything cold water, wind, dust, etc which increases in changing season. Doctor advised me to spend most time in homes and medicines were provided to control the allergy. It cured with time and now I only take single tablet daily to control my allergy. The doctor said to take it only when allergy symptoms appear but they comes out when I stop taking medicine. Now while researching about indoor air pollution I found what force me to take that tablet continuously even when I am mostly home-bound. 
We can avoid Indoor ai…

RIP Tom Alter
I am sure those who grew up in nineties are not unfamiliar with his name. Like many I also has his first image in my mind is of 'British Raj Ka Writer' in Doordarshan serial 'Zabaan Sambhaal Ke' where he played an Englishman writer who is learning Hindi. He was impressive in that role along with the other's worked in it. I later saw him in films like Charas, Karma, Kranti and films like that where he has played bad characters of Firangi (foreign) officer. He played these negative characters impressively and when you compare them with his comic role in Zabaan Sambhalke you will know his acting proves. 
I also remembered him as Mahaguru in popular superhero serial Shaktimaan but what inspired me about him later on in my life was his command on Hindi and Urdu. He recite shayaris and ghazals beautifully. I have seen performing him many time on television. I also knew he was a great theater actor but never got any chance to see him live on stage. His ghaz…
