Cricket Crazy

Cricket Crazy

As I came to know about crazy cricket contest last year's incident came flashing into my mind. Tracking the match this year with application's match centre feature is a cake walk. It shows most interesting thing about a particular match like interesting stats,missed moments,spectacular catches and so on. On the whole this app satisfies all your cricketing needs.

But that wasn't the case on 15th May 2013 i.e first birthday of my niece. Since it was her first birthday all relatives, neighbors and friends were invited but that day coincided with matches of my two favorite IPL teams,during day it was Kolkata's match ( I like KKR for ShahRukh connection) and at night it was Mumbai's match ( Mumbai for Sachin Tendulkar.) I knew it a day before that these matches would be missed. There was not a chance to see them at home and we have declared holiday for that day in our office and factory. I lost the hope to see them and remained busy with preparations of the event in dejected mood. and when my cousin told me that KKR lost the match,I became restless for Mumbai's match.( Why she chose that day to born?)

So in evening I went to a neighborhood tea shop and sat there to watch the match while others were busy with birthday and dinner. Talking about the match with fellow tea mates I completely forgot the birthday party, when match ended around 11:30, I reached home where everyone was waiting for me in anger. My elder brother started scolding me,my mother was crying. They thought I have lost the way or in some trouble to miss an occasion awaited by me. My phone was also in silent mode.) When I told where I was they burst into laughter being aware of my cricket love.

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…

(Inter - Religion marriage still taboo among Indians ? What is your take on it .)

We as Indians are still confused for our cultural identity i.e who we are as residents of this country. Hindu,Hindustani,Indian,Bharatiya,Hindi or something else. When there is so much struggle in conveying our identity then how people who consider even inter-caste marriages as taboo would accept Inter - Religion marriages. We are all united under our constitution which make all of us equal and grants freedom to follow any religion. An adult individual thus holds the freedom to choose his or her partner regardless to any religion.The constitution also declares India as Bharat or India and not as Hindustan which denotes its secular identity not related to a particular religion. How a Chris…
