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

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.

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.

(Inter - Religion marriage still taboo among Indians ? What is your take on it .)

We as Indians are still confused for our cultural identity i.e who we are as residents of this country. Hindu,Hindustani,Indian,Bharatiya,Hindi or something else.

An adult individual thus holds the freedom to choose his or her partner regardless to any religion.The constitution also declares India as Bharat or India and not as Hindustan which denotes its secular identity not related to a particular religion. How a Chris…
