Killers Of Faith

Killers Of Faith

Kabir believed in equality of every religion which was also the reason for changing his name. The word Kabir didn't tell his religion,caste or community as it belonged to a saint poet of 15th century India who was equally followed and appreciated by Hindus and Muslims of that time. He married Dhara who also believed in the same way this was the reason they came close and married against their families' wishes. They both visit each temple,sufi shrine,mosque,gurudwara and churches and giving alms to poor was their routine during those visits.

While visiting different places of different religion they noticed a beggar common to all these places. He was handicapped but during a long drive at night, they saw him walking with both feet. They were shocked and decided to caught him red handed next time they visit a temple or a mosque. They also informed police about this con-man. Next day when they visited a temple police accompanied them. Kabir snatched his crutch to show police his real face. When he stood straight he asked him the reason for his behaviour.

"Sir I am very poor,I tried for work but nobody gave me a job. To run my family it was necessary that I would beg and who gave alms to a healthy person?" " But you are playing with people's faith." " I am playing with people's faith? I am not sir! I am doing this only to rear my family, killers of faith are those who mint money in the name of god ,who raped girls hiding behind godly masks,who make charity to hide their black money,who instigate riots backed by political parties.I also believes in every religion like you the only difference is that I am poor."

Kabir didn't know what to say. He didn't have counter questions for him. He asked police to leave him and gave him peon's job in his company. 

Killers of faith are everywhere around us but then there are also savers of faith who are also thriving fast.

Today's alphabet is and it's UBC DAY 12.

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…
