Exchanged Luck

Exchanged Luck


" Entrance of his office is difficult to cross but after that everything will be easy," Vinayak gave him five Rs 1000 note for this information. Vinayak was an investigative journalist who was planning for a sting operation on Urban Development Minister D.Rajan. An insider from his office gave each detail about minister. Vinayak and his team fixed everything,they planned to offer him money disguised as some builder to have the government land allotted for an amusement park to make their building. 

It was an open secret that Urban Development Minister Mr D. Rajan is corrupt. Trapping him in this sting was a definite explosive story which would grab attention of all prime time news viewers. Vinayak's team fixed a meeting with minister. Everything was going according to the plan,they passed the guards at the gate without hidden camera being caught by them.They started their conversation with D.Rajan to expose his covetous side to the public. But to their surprise he declined to accept the bribe and to entertain their cause.

" Sir! This amusement park is a necessity of the people for recreation purposes. Moreover it will increase our tourism." He point towards the door and said them to leave. Vinayak also planned for a raid at his office by Anti-Corruption Unit( A.C.U)and it was almost the time of their coming but Rajan haven't touched the money yet. This could put Vinayak in trouble. When A.C.U raided they didn't find Rajan guilty instead they took Vinayak and others in custody for unethical sting operation." Officer can I have a word with Mr.Vinayak." Rajan stopped A.C.U officer and talked with Vinayak separately.  

" Vinayak you are looking surprised at my honesty and at our exchanged luck." " Yes I am." He smiled and said," As you have sources in my office I too have sources in yours,I know It was a trap,which changed my colors completely." Vinayak stood silent than laughed and went away with A.C.U. He laughed because for a second he had thought that D.Rajan was an honest politician a rare species in our country.

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…

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…

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…
