Festival Of India

Festival Of India

Festival of India perhaps is a confusing heading if writing about General Elections but this is actually a festival for democracy. It is the time to celebrate the uniqueness of a democratic system. It is the time to realise our power of vote. Those who believe what a one vote can do ask candidates who have lost a election by just few hundred votes. Your vote make you responsible for the happenings in the country and make you eligible to ask questions to your representatives if they don't perform their duties well.

The irony of the current election is that it talks about the issues of inflation being the most expensive election in the history of the country. The election battle before really going into the ground zero is being fought at newsrooms in TV studio debates,at social media platforms like face book,twitter,google+,etc. All these media platforms are taking away actual issues. No party is talking about any issues and the one man who have raised many issues is missing from media coverage. But I am not here to blame or support any body. I just wants to share few important things.

We follow parliamentary system of governance in our country. In this form we elect a representative from our area. Then these representatives elected by us if gets majority select a leader among themselves as a Prime Minister which runs the government with his council of ministers. So first thing to keep in mind is to check the background of all the candidates standing from your area ( data available on Election Commissions website), read their parties manifesto to know their vision for the country,( don't let any wave created through media influence you), if possible connect to your candidates and ask them what they have in store for your area, to select a winnable party is also important so don't follow only TV debates,search Internet to know winnablity factor,local newspapers and news channels will also help.

If you didn't find a better candidate then NOTA ( None Of The Above ) is also an option now. But do go to the polling station to excise your right to vote otherwise your vote can be caste by someone else to an undeserving candidate by corrupt means. Collect information, read policies,look for any criminal charges and finally CASTE YOUR VOTE and celebrate this festival of India.


  1. it is a festival! I shall be casting my vote here in Delhi on the 10th of April :)

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 Rumors?

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. They are asserting that some miscreants are behind the incident.
The video allegedly claims that a woman is on a mission to cut 1008 women braids in order to get invisibility power according to a black magic ritual. I heard this news around a month ago from someone whose relatives live in Rajasthan. The incident was not in news at that time, I denied him saying that these are rumors or acts of miscreants and I still believe miscr…

Naive Traveler : City of Nawabs - Lucknow

Naive Traveler : City of Nawabs - Lucknow

Lucknow is known as The City of Nawabs the royal ruler of the city which gave it culinary & cultural identity like the way of talking I noticed while interacting with the people. 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…
