One Day

One Day


One day changed everything for her. A day before she was free,independent and an earning child who was taking all responsibilities of her mother and in a day's time she was sitting silent in a room surrounded by some girls and women chatting about her marriage and her husband. Whole world has turned 360 degrees for her.New family,new home,new atmosphere,everyone around her was a stranger. After few minutes all left her alone in the room to wait for her husband.

She remembered arguments with her mother when she told her to marry. She was against this marriage because her brother was still studying and she didn't want any extra burden on him and her mother. But her mother denied her opposition as such a good match was rare ." He was educated,well settled,well behaved,what more do you want? Soon you will be overage then who will marry you?" " But what about you and Ashwin who will take care of you both and what about my job? You know that my salary runs this house ?" She was not satisfied with her mother's answer that they would manage themselves but she kneel in front of her mother's emotional blackmail and pressure. She was required to marry an unknown,unseen person which she did.

She was sweating even in air conditioner thinking about her new life this one day has brought for her. She was worried about her partner,his nature,would he allow her to meet his family,would he let her go to work,all such questions were frightening While she was thinking about her past and future,she heard someone opening the door. Her husband entered the room and sat beside her. She was trembling. He raised her head and stretched his arm in a position to offer to shake hand," Hi! My name is Naveen will you be my friend."

His words put smile on her pale sweating face. Her fear and hesitation were gone. He made her so comfortable that she talked her heart out.She explained her concerns about her mother and brother to which he said that she could work if she wanted and could give salary to her mother. As that night was approaching to end she realized that one day has changed her world in a better way.

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…
