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.

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…

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…

RIP Tom Alter

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…
