World Temple

World Temple


"World Temple would be a place of worship for all." As teacher finished the lesson school bell rang and all students started leaving the class except Mridul. The idea of world temple where every religion would be equally worshiped struck him so strongly that he wanted to know more about this theory. He ran towards his teacher and inquired the details.

" See Mridul this chapter put forward this idea in sync with 'all world is a home concept'. Holy books of all religions would be kept there,there would be walls inscribed with stories and teachings of Islam,Hinduism,Christianity,Sikhism,Judaism,Buddhism,etc. All caste,culture,creed,color would be allowed in this temple. All world would be equal there as humans and not as Hindus or Muslims or Christian or anybody else." " Sir who will build this temple." His teacher's answer that he didn't know made Mridul more curious. He went home and told her mother about what he learnt in the school and asked the same question from her. She averted the topic and asked him to be ready for lunch.

That day he didn't go outside to play with friends. Everywhere in news he saw hatred at its peak,people making demeaning remarks for other religion or region. World temple would be full of love for everyone. He asked this question about world temple from many around him in the building where he lived but all ignored him. They didn't knew the answer of his question. They never thought about that, how its possible that each religion resided with harmony with other religion under same roof.

 In the evening when his father returned from office he explained his lesson and asked the same question to him. His father smiled patted his back and said," You will build this temple my son." " Me Dad!" He looked surprised." Yes my son,world temple is in you. It's in everyone who respect all religions equally.Those who keep God in their heart and not in any religious place. It will be a place for god loving people rather than god fearing people." His father's answer satisfied him. He gave a promise to his father to construct a strong world temple and to spread its roots to others as well.


Today's alphabet is W and it's UBC DAY 26.

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…

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…

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…
