Last Few Days - Bye Orkut

Last Few Days - Bye Orkut



"Babumushai!' He called me with love in his voice at my recent visit to him." What happened you are looking depressed?" " Am I, " He rubbed his face,looked into the mirror as if I looked what he was hiding his real emotions of pain. Doctors had already made this news public Orkut's days are numbered. I tried to console myself so that he wouldn't feel bad but as I looked into his eyes all those years of our togetherness came in front of me and tears started flowing automatically.

He became upset," Oh! That means you know all." " Yes," " and now you will try to give me your shoulder to cry, to curse my fate, to blame my stars, you will now give me sympathy and some tears of separation. I don't need such type of treatment. Whatever time I have I want to enjoy it. I wants to see everyone smiling. I wants to distribute happiness in this little time left with me. I wish people remember in me a face which not only smiles but also spread smiles." "Orkut! Isn't it any hope?" " Love arises hope my friend and that lovely thing was snatched from me long time ago and after my death news people are coming only to take away their belongings kept with me. That love was lost long time ago"

"But aren't you shocked with sudden news that you are going to die?" " No Babumushai! Zindagi aur maut to uppar wale ke haath main hai ,hum sub to uske hato ki kathputliyan hain, woh kab kahan hamari dor kheench le koi nahin janta.( Life and death are in God's hand. We are puppets in his hand. He can cut our roles whenever He wants.)" That Anandish Orkut was hiding his pain, there was a time when he was apple of everyone's eye but as they say change is permanent he couldn't coup with the change and declined in status and health. Something which remained our integral part became useless after sometimes. This is the law of the nature old gives way to the new. Being unable to say anything I left him to adjust to the situation and accept the reality. He still wanted to spread happiness in the world which I think would ease his last days. Soul is immortal it will change its form if something interesting is available.

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…
