Nature's Plan

Nature's Plan




"The winter is coming my son," he looked at the vast barren land which used to be his village in that god gifted place and added, "I think we need to leave now."

"But papa, our home is here," "our home was here." He corrected his son and moved inside the make shift home to start packing whatever few things they had. They were among the negligible survivors from their village after the flood which devastated the paradise on earth Kashmir Valley. They refused to go with army when they came for rescue so that they could stay and rebuild their village with the help and aid provided by the government through army.

They lived among the rotten dead human and animal bodies, buried them, helped each other to construct houses with limited resources but never thought of living their village because this would mean the extinction of their ancestral land but the intense cold winds were indicating early onset of winter and snowfall. The make shift houses were not enough to sustain chilly winters. They decided to leave immediately with teary eyes but god has different plans. The Hudhud cyclonic winds in Indian ocean the reason for humongous destruction of property and life in eastern coastal region of India reached Himalayan mountain range causing early snowfall in that region.

Those preparing to leave their villages to safer places in winter got struck their due to snowfall to die a slow death. They were destined to die by natural calamity and they died by one. Nobody can change nature's plan.

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…

Amritsar & Wagah Border Trip

Amritsar & Wagah Border Trip


Amritsar is the city of Golden Temple the sacred pilgrimage for Sikhs. The area around is recently developed beautifully to promote tourism by renovating it with related themes and including some modern day structures which compliment the place nicely. Historical Jalianwala Bagh where Britishers fired mercilessly on innocent Indians also lies in that area and it now has a monument as a remembrance to those who killed in that massacre. Another important thing in the area is Partition Museum build inside Town Hall which encloses memories of partition with having things donated by people effected by the tragedy along with the historical accounts of that time. But photography is not allowed inside the museum. 






I also visited Ranjit Singh Panorama Museum which housed weapons of Ranjit Singh army and has some depictions of Raja Ranjit Singh's life through painting and models. There is also Gobindgarh Fort which you must visit for the 7D film on life of R…

In the course of life it is not the one man or one moment which inspires to be better and the best but anyone you come across in your life teaches you something valuable. These lessons we learn from them improves our lives and make us better making these men our role model whom we tries to imitate.

When I was a child my families financial condition was not very good. My father suffered a huge loss in his business. One or the other borrower queues daily at our door for their money while we didn't have enough money to afford even food.

He learned machine embroidery work in only four months for which others took a year or so to learn and then he started his own work with some financial support from my parents who at that time opened a grocery shop.

I was very young at that time but I still remembered that my brother ha…
