Amateur Writer


A childless couple in late forties decided to keep a Paying Guest. The location and atmosphere of their house suits the best to an amateur writer Pawan who came to their house. Mr and Mrs. Mehta who were living a lonely life found a good companion in them. He also likes to talk to them and spent a lot of time discussing various things. When Mr. Rahul was off to work he even help Anjali in cooking and other household works. In only few months his rapport with them became as if they knew each other for years.

Anjali was happy after almost twenty years when they lost hope to be parents again due to an accident. This accident was responsible for her miscarriage and to bring impotency in Rahul. Rahul knew how much void Anjali experienced all through these years ,people and relatives blamed her but she never spoke anything. Their adoption application was rejected several times after which they dropped the plan of adoption. But after seeing Anjali happy with Pawan,Rahul was planning something else. He had seen her in pain of being childless without any fault of her. Rahul could be one who can fathered their child. He decided to converse with them one by one to make them ready to have a baby whom he could give his own name.

One night he thought to share that idea with Anjali," Anjali I want to say something about Pawan." " Even I want to say something Rahul. You know what he told me today." " What?" " He said that he lost his parents in infancy, all his life he longed for parents a loving mother and a caring father,he said he finds them in us, he said that he wants to call me 'Ma'(mother) and you Papa" Rahul has tears in his eyes,he was speechless. He was wanting a child from Pawan while Anjali found their child in an amateur writer.

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


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.

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…
