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…

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.

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…
