Read the first part here : Yearning 


Zeal to live from his life was gone which soon send him to hospital bed. The condition of government hospital in his area was so pathetic that his death was evident. He was also prepared for his death, he cleared all dues of various people in his village including his servant whom he advised to leave but he refused owing to his beneficence and treating it as his duty to serve him. 

His condition became bad to worse. His physical food intake stopped and he became unconscious with weakness. Later he transferred to another hospital where he started improving. After seven days he came in a position to open his eyes properly. He surprised to see himself in a private room of a different hospital. His servant was sitting beside him. He ran outside in excitement to see Rajan in senses. A young man in mid-twenties entered with Rajan's servant. Rajan didn't recognize him at first glance but as he came closer a proud smile enveloped his face.

That young man was Abhinav who was his student ten years ago. Abhinav's parents died in an accident when he was in class tenth. He fell in bad company. It was Rajan who brought him on right track, supported his studies and gave him space in his house till he completed his twelfth standard. He got scholarship from a reputed college in a foreign country and went abroad for his higher studies. He married and got a job there which he left to work in his own country India and to spend time with his teacher Rajan Sir. But when he returned Rajan shifted to his village. He searched for him wherever he got hint for his existence. One day he received a call from his old friend who told him about Rajan sir. When he reached the village,he found that Rajan was in hospital. 

He shifted him to a renowned hospital and cared for him. Rajan's eyes filled with tears learning all this from his servant. A zephyr was felt by him which cooled his distracted heart. Abhinav took him to his home when doctors discharged him. His teachings were not useless. Perhaps time changes the people's perception about someone or something but it was also time which teaches significance of something or someone. It was then you feel zephyr is refreshing.

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 substances however are not harmful a…

Lynch Raj

Lynch Raj
An aged man keeping meet in home, a milkman transporting cattle for milking, rumors of child kidnapper, a policeman conducting his duties or you just innocent Muslim boys going home for Eid, this give enough reason to criminal mobs to lynch innocents without any respect and fear for the law. From last three years since the Modi government came in power these lynching of innocent people by mob has increased manifolds many of which are conducted by radicalized Hindu youths in the name of protecting ‘Mother Cow’ and their tradition forgetting about innocent humans they have killed in this process. Latest incident happened with three Muslim brothers going home in a train from Delhi to Mathura after Eid shopping in Delhi. A group of 10-12 men between 7-8 pm attacked them and stabbed one Junaid to death while two others are battling for life in Delhi hospital. The brutality with which they were attacked and the hatred filled in the criminal mob can be judge by seeing the blood pai…

Naive Traveler : Delhi Darshan # 4

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…
