Criminals Not To Be Part Of 16th Lok Sabha

Criminals Not To Be Part Of 16th Lok Sabha

May 17th 2014: New Delhi : When nation is witnessing a hung house as no party or coalition is heading towards a clean majority a good news is coming from behalf of Election Commission (EC) and Association of Democratic Reforms (ADR) that all candidates with criminal records have lost their elections. Chief Election Commissioner VS Sampath labelling it as the victory of democracy said," EC's team efforts for free and fair election has given us such results. I thank all Indian voters for this victory."

Responding to the news PM Manmohan Singh gave his government the credit for initiating electoral reforms by giving more powers to the EC and for providing an environment where guilty got punishment. BJP's PM post candidate Narender Modi told our reporter that he encouraged people during his public meetings to vote for the honest and decent candidates. AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal mocked his response and said ," Modi Ji's sense of humor is very good it was his party that gave the most number of tickets to candidates with criminal background and there are also ministers in his Gujarat government convicted by the court of law." Rahul Gandhi and his mother Congress chairperson Sonia Gandhi remained silence on the issue while most of the other congress leaders tweeted it as the victory of their party's no tolerance for criminals policy forgetting that many party ministers are in jail bars various scams and crimes.

It is still not clear who will form the government at centre in coming days but this result will bar political parties to contest elections with candidates having criminal backgrounds. Some experts believes that apart from efforts by EC and ADR, Aamir Khan's Satyamev Jayate played a pivotal role in decriminalizing these elections. The whole nation for the first time in the history of Indian elections is celebrating the victory of Indian democracy rather than victory of any leader or political party.

PS : This news excerpt perhaps will never appear on 17th May 2014 after result of General Elections but there is no wrong in dreaming good. As I believe that's its only dream that comes true.

  1. I wish this could become a reality. :)

    In real life, these candidates will just raise a Manmohan instead. Like Rabri for Laloo Yadav. Like Asha Rani for Raja Bhaiyya.

    1. Perhaps this would be reality in near future

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…

Burning Bengal

Burning Bengal 
When the nation is in a fix with its relations with China the home is also not right as Bengal is burning from two sides. You can say that I am picking the topic late but I don’t want to spread the rumor without confirming all the sources which is giving news information. Here I should mention that don’t overreact on social media hypes until news are coming from authentic news agencies.
Basirhat communal violence which triggered with a controversial Facebook post by a class 11th student took an ugly turn when Muslim mobs started vandalizing properties of the Hindus but this is only the half story. The calm which prevailed after Thursday is revealing the story that many Muslims saved their Hindu friends and neighbors by confronting the mob. Hindu-Muslim groups are now helping those who have financial losses in shops/business to stand again by helping them with money (Read Indian Express front page of 9th July 2017). Locals knew that mob that attacked in their area were …

Naive Traveler : Delhi Darshan # 4

Naive Traveler : Delhi Darshan # 4

Delhi as we all know is habitat and destroyed several times in different eras since it always remained the central city for each empire. As a result of these variant rulers from ancient times to the British era, Delhi enjoys the status of being witness to their grandeur and glory. Thus we the people of modern day India are privileged to see and feel that aura and ambiance. This was my fourth trip of sightseeing in Delhi and believe me I need many more days to explore the Delhi to its fullest. 
This time I chose the places known for its haunted experiences like Bhooli Bhatiyar, Feroz Shah Kotla Fort, Rajon Ki Baoli in Mehrauli Archaeological Park, Giyas-ud-Din Tughlaq Tomb  and Tughlaqabad Fort.The scorching heat of next day of heat digested all our energy so we also visited Indira Gandhi Memorial an all air conditioned museum which rejuvenated us. Since it was not far from Safdurjung Tomb we also give a visit to that place also. 
Now talking about m…
